Updating bios ga ma69vm s2

In my case I was using a dual drive system with both drives on the primary channel, so I had to move the drive in question to be Master on the secondary channel for the tool to work its magic. I run your program and within 10 seconds it was 80Gb back…. I spent two weeks trying to recover the data with half a dozen programs, and purchased partition recovery software, only to find this simple program could fix my drive.Hello Dimitry, I have a 250GB hard disk drive installed with 2 partititions. That was exactly what I did and as soon as I choose the 16-GB clip mode everything returned to normal. One point though, an error initially suggested I should try it on another platform, and check the BIOS for HPA settings.This tool allowed me to reset the drive to its full capacity, sans DDO. I have a 160GB drive that was previously full of all my data, but is now appearing unformatted to windows XP SP2, and as 33GB to the BIOS.One side note: The tool requires that the drive you’re resetting be on its own IDE channel. Capacity limit jumpers aren’t set on the drive, and some recovery software has been able to find the 149GB [formatted capacity of the drive] partition, but not restore it (it can’t restore 149GB of data into 33GB of space) Will this tool restore the drive to full capacity without damaging the existing data on the drive? My previously useless hard drive [mysteriously reporting to windows as 33GB unformatted instead of 160GB 80% full of stuff] has been resuscitated in two clicks by this program.

Some manufacturers (for example, Dell and HP) use DCO to reduce capacity for marketing needs.Hard drive manufacturers use decimal gigabytes while operating systems use binary gigabytes.One decimal gigabyte contains that’s more than a 7% difference!In other words it was not reliable enough durning tests at more that the 200gig size. Also i have tried this type of restoration before using ghost, and found the drive to become very unstable in saving data. You may try to find a software that does SCSI formatting or use your SCSI card BIOS to format the drive. I was removing the evil Dynamic Drive Overlay from a 120 GB IDE drive by zero-ing out the first sectors of the hard drive.

Especially getting windows delayed write errors the higher up the drive as you fill it. That seemed to get rid of DDO, yet the BIOS still said the drive was only ~32 GB.I took it and installed it in another pc but instead of 250GB bios and windows recognize only 33GB. I’m a happy man with my 250GB hard disk drive ready for new adventures and this thanks to your advise. This was not necessary – but the error dialogue in the next version of the software should ask users to check that the drive is a) on its own channel and b) set as master on that channel, by jumper if necessary (Cable Select wasn’t working) Brilliance!
