I know that this is *not* your main concern but I think it worth noting that 
the size of your 250G harddisk was correctly reported as being 232.88G. The 
reason being that harddisk vendors use 1G = 1000^3 while computer science 
defines 1G = 1024^3. (Note: I think there are some standard definition by the 
IEEE(?) but I don't have a URL for that.)

So 250*1000^3 = 250.000.000.000 ~ 232.8*1024^3

Wish you all the luck for the problems remaining!

Kind regards
Martin Eisenhardt
