I have just assembled a new pc (shuttle-barebones) the hard drive I have fitted is a 200gb, according to the properties dialog box it is only 139gb , I have installed win xp pro, any idea why this is. Dave

XP requires SP1 to be installed to recognise drives over this size and when I recently installed a pair of 160gb Maxtors I also had to run Maxtor's Bid Drive Enabler Utility.

Hi, Where are these sizes of hard drives going to end?. The mind 'Boggles'. I remember when a 1Gb was enormous. Cheers, Bill
