Hi I hope someone has some advice (i aint the most technical but I'll try to explain >> if I didnt read through pcadvisor regularly I wouldnt have a clue about comps lol , although my knowledge is still very limited )...
I have 2 Maxtor drives , 80GB thats split to read as a C:20GB with windows documents on it , plus E:60GB plus a seperate D:40GB ,
my point is .. I am in Disk Managment which shows my HHD'S but they read as
C:19:53 should actually be C:20GB D:38:28 should actually be D:40GB E:56:79 should actually be E:60GB
All should total 120GB combined , right ? but they all add upto ( or around lol ) 114:60GB ... where has the other 5:40GB gone ???
If you open My Computer, right click on each drive in turn, and look at properties - you will see the sizes in Bytes as will as Gigabytes - there, with the Bytes, you will see the 20, 40 and 60 thousand million figures, that match to what you expected to see.
