Hi,I have a desktop running windows 7 home premium,I decided to get an internal hdd as an extra second one and decided to get a 3TB seagate from amazon.
Well it arrived today fitting went well went into device manager to format it etc,And it only showed up as 745GB it said on the casing of the dive 3TB,
Is there any explanation for this please.
Thanks for reply,Not quite sure about specs.My desktop windows 7 home premium 4gb ram and the label that was put on the top is a ''Biostar N61PB-M2S.
New 3TB Drive ''Seagate SEA3TBSATA6GBS SEA ST3000M001 3.5 3TB SATA''
Will that help in any way,This pc was home built by a local computer shop
I did that,That's when the end result was 745gb nowhere near 3tb.I bought this item from Amazon,Been in touch with them and made arrangements to collect on monday.
But if I can solve the problem by then I can cancel collection.If it does get returned to Amazon and I change it for a 2TB will I have same problem as the 3TB?.If there is going to be no prob's with the 2TB I can exchange from the 3TB to another one to 2TB.
