I have an Evesham Vale PC with an AMD 80x86-Compatible MMX CPU. I recently added a Maxtor 120GB hard disk. After formatting it the PC only recognised it as having a capacity of 38.28GB. Please could you advise how I can access the rest of the drive.

What operating system are you using as some of the older versions of Windows did not support 'large' drives. Look on Maxtor sweb site for fix
