I just reinstalled XP Pro and now it says I'm using 107 of my 250 GB. Is there anyway to erase everything from the harddrive (including partitions and formats. I want to start all the way over.

I got it fixed. Now windows only recognizes 130Gigs. Anything to fix that and be able to use all 250 Gigs?

Sp2.I am guessing you installed with an sp1 disk and the drive size is limited to 137 gigs.
