I restored my acer laptop to factory settings which seemed to work fine. Vista booted OK and the drive looked fine in vista disk management - NTFS, healthy etc.
Problems showed up when I tried to backup the partition, the backup size was 50GB when there was only 10GB used on the partition.
If I look at the drive in paragon hard disk manager it states that the drive is not formatted and the size is 50.9GB of which 2047.9GB has been used - which is obviously wrong.
I've been using the restored system for months and it's fine but some info about the drive must be corrupt.
Pulling my hair out here and would appreciate some help.
