Hi guys i'd just like to know if you can still access the hidden part of your hardrive when you install a different operation system. for example, when i bought my pc it came with windows ME and i know have XP pro running. I have reformatted a couple of times when i messed up my pc but there always seems to be 8mb of drive which stays seperate to the rest when i do this. is this the part of the drive where a copy of ME will be stored forever or can i merge this space with the rest of the drive? Thanks.
