  1. Lost 50% HDD capacity


    Hi, I have posted the following on the AOMEI forum. I have W10 with all updates.

    On a 1TB external USB attached HDD , not SSD, with two partitions of 460+ GB, I wanted to merge the two partitions
    into one partition. So D: and G: into one x 1TB partition. I Used AOMEI merge partitions. There was data
    on drive G: only

    It ran for a few hours but when it had had finished I had two x 232GB partions so lost 500 GB capaity
    on the drive.

    This was done on my Laptop running on battery, I think the power may have run out part way through the process.

    Is there some way I can recover my full drive capacity.

    Any advise appreciated

    Regards

    Daniel

    :)

  2. DC-50 capacity inconsistency

    Hi,



    Bought a DC-50 wireless charging battery last week.



    If I leave me phone (Lumia 1020) on the desk from 8am to 5pm it loses approx 20% battery throughout the day. That equates to approx 400mAh.



    If I leave my phone on my fully-charged DC-50 thoughout the day it reaches 5pm with 100% capacity but the DC-50 is completely flat.



    I would have hoped the DC-50 to have discharged by 25% or at worst 50%.



    Any explanation for this?



    Thanks!

    Hi Johan,

    It is possible that your
    HDD was unreadable
    causing the error message to appear. We recommend that you perform these troubleshooting steps and check if there are any changes:


    • Shutdown
      your
      PC.

    • Unhooked
      the
      HDD
      and
      turn on
      your
      PC.

    • Reconnect
      your
      HDD
      and
      restart
      your
      PC.

    If the issue persists, we suggest that you contact your
    laptop/computer's manufacturer
    for further assistance.

    Update us on how it goes.

    Regards.
