Restoring Normal HardDrive
 
hi
My computer just had a virus and now the comp is reading from an msdos harddrive which is 200mb.

How can i restore it to my normal hardrive which is 80Gb?

what?
1) do you have more than one drive, or multiple partitions?
2) what OS were you running?
3) why do you have DOS installed?
4) what do you mean restore; do you want to format, or boot from it or what?

i dont know...but before my comp had a virus it had 80gb and now it has 200mb from msdos

please answer the questions.

the problem is that DOS does not understand Gigabytes, they are larger than it's little processing power can handle, and it guesses the size of your drive.
Assuming your drive is toast, your options seem to be to put your windows disk in, format and re-install.
