    Hi,
    I ha ve a problem with my hard disk. It had 4 partitions but after a
    Linux installation, partition table has been corrupted. So I thought to
    format it completely.
    I used fdisk and I have erased all partitions and digited the command
    fdisk /mbr too. But now fdisk can see only 12 Gb instead of 80 Gb.
    My hard disk is a Maxtor. How can I do to resolve the problem? I just
    wanna fdisk can see all space.

    Thank you,

    Nicola

    There's an updated fdisk on Microsoft's site. I think the Linux fdisk
    also works. It's been discussed here many times, so Google should
    easily turn up additional information.
