Back up with SATa drive

  old6x 19:22 16 Mar 2011

Having just bought a new PC i was left with a perfectly good SATA HDD which I intended for use in backups. The drive seemed to work ok until it cane to backing up! The drive was 320gb but when trying to back up it shows as only 47gb (not much good for a full backup). Anyone got any ideas on this would welcome.

Windows will not show the correct size of drive. Have tried several drives, SATA and ATA IDE but still the same problem. I have formated these drives but still the same. I can't find any solution anywhere so far.

Probably a BIOS setting.
Go into BIOS and set HDD detection to auto.

Have you made the drive "active"?
