I reinstalled Xp onto my 500G Seagate Barracude HDD but after formatting the available size was only 130G. Any ideas where the rest has gone? I've run Chkdsk and reformatted again, everything says the disk is working ok but minus the rest. Any ideas?
Thanks people, couldn't find anything in Device Manager but a bit of freeware called Easeus allowed me to see the whole drive and resize the partition. Not a bad tool actually now I've got all my gigs back. The really interesting thing is without all the rot that was bundled the PC feels really efficient. Thanks again.
