Partition Error : 80Go -> 100Mo ?!?


I have 2 hard drives on my machine: a 80GB SSD (Intel X-25M Postville -> my problem) and a classic 1TB HDD. I installed Windows 7 64 bit on the SSD. But after installing Windows, I had no partition defined on the second disk (1TB). And I did not find in Windows 7 tools to manage it. As I had not seen how to define the partitions easily from the installation CD (I just found it now, but too late), so I used Partition Magic on a Live CD that displayed 3 error messages displayed on the partition table. I missed out my blow by correcting the error. And since, not only Windows 7 is not working well, but mostly I do not have access to 100MB on the SSD, even removing all disk partitions available on the DSS.

Do you know how to fix the SSD in order to re-create a partition of 80GB (74 in reality, actually).

Thank you in advance for the help you can give me, and I apologize again for my stupidity handling.



PS : It's a Google Translation of a french text. Sorry for mistakes.

The "Secure Erase" command will return an Intel SSD to its factory state. You can do this with any hard drive diagnostic tool.

Hope that helps.
