Re: How much unallocated space

Hi,
In my comprehension, you have 71798 cylinders, but you have two partitions starting to 4960. So you have a win95 extended partition with 5 partitions linux, so you could perhaps create more partitions to go to 71798 in this extended partitions. Maybe you have install a linux box on a old windows.

Re: How much unallocated space

There is free space above cylinder 8231, so about 250 GB could be allocated in new logical partitions.

Re: How much unallocated space

You have 259353440 (259 GB) of free space.

From the partition 4 (extended), rest each logical unit (partitions 5-9) and you will have the remaining space to create new logical units.
