Hard drive not showing full capacity

  sq0nk 17:53 10 Dec 2003

I have a 120gb primary drive and have just installed a 200gb slave. When I look in the BIOS it shows the slave disk as 200gb but Computer Manager shows the disk as only 128gb. Where has the other 70gb gone.

Dell Dimension 4550 2.8ghz
512mb Ram
Windows XP Pro

Is it formatted as FAT32 or NTFS?

Both disks are formatted as NTFS

what motherboard do you have and what BIOS? its a possibility that your BIOS doesnt support 200gbs so its reading the maximum it can! if thats the case then a bios update might solve it!
