How to find out whether the PC has a hidden partition?
In order to find out if your PC contains a hidden partiton/service partition you may check one of the following points:
- FDISK.exe shows all partition information -> a hidden one would be "non-dos" with only some MB of space
- Check the system information report (WINMSD) for "small" partitions which are not available through the explorer
- Contact the manufacturer of the PC model to get information about hidden partitions (e.g. Compaq or IBM often implement such partitions)
