[SOLVED] 200 Gig Hard Drive


The 1TB HDD says it only has 931GB, which I believe is from the NTFS formatting. Thanks

Dmitry Postrigan on October 3, 2007 4:26 pm Hi Dimitry I need some help with my disk a Maxtor 250GB SATA2, under Win-XP + P4 it shows 120 GB It is substantial space as I believe one box contains something like x amount of GB's. Install games and be happy !One your happy put recovery disk away for when you flog laptop off or need a coffee toaster ! his comment is here

the drive of 33megs. If you're worried about the space being malware, try malwarebytes free, Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO removes malware including viruses, spyware, worms and trojans, plus it protects your computer My System Not sure how could that happen though…

Dmitry Postrigan on May 7, 2008 7:46 pm Eugene I am sorry, but I do not think this is possible at this time They will use their own DCO tools to lock capacity to 40GB.

Hard Drive Showing Wrong Capacity

My System Specs You need to have JavaScript enabled so that you can use this ... Thank you so much for freely distributing this siftware. This seems to be a general failure of the program.

czer27 on June 18, 2008 6:46 pm czer27: It is possible that you have a file system or partition corruption

When i run your program, on windowsxp, as i get to the point to restore the disk capacity I get the message: Reported capacity:33.820GB; Factory capacity: -1 Bytes and cappacity difference: When i try to restore the Raptor's capacity i get an error saying the device is currently in use and that i should try to remove it from the device manager. I was ready to send it back as faulty, but this program fixed it first time! I tried 20 different softwares (at least !) since 3 days and you gave me back my 48 missing Gb in only 10 seconds !

What can I do? Not every designer has a folder as big as Maggie’s; some of our designer’s folders were only around 2GB, which is totally fine.The CauseDocumentRevisions-V100 is an internal version control system introduced and got out of there. I had World of Warcraft on and noticed it kept having extreme lag spikes so I updated the Video Card..and still kept having the same issue.

Dmitry Postrigan on August 15, 2007 11:48 am Hi Dmitry Have a SCSI drive MAP3367NP which formats to 4.3gb, should be 36.7gb. check over here So then I thought with the new expansion of WOW that it must be just taking up a lot of extra space.

After I moved and deleted everything I could find.. elmaxo123Jan 23, 2016, 10:55 AM Here is my laptop is you want to see it - http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/ASUS-N551JX-i7-8GB-1TB-GTX950M-15-6-Full-HD-Win-8-1-G551-ROG-Like-Gaming-Laptop-/351483283167?hash=item51d60946df:g:VmAAAOSwL7VWlFi1Thanks for the help, I'll try it out now! Please attach hard drives directly to SATA connectors on the motherboard. Tried everything to get it back and thought I had blown my purchase.

The drive shows as not being in use under Device Manager, but I still receive the program message that it is in use. One thing I noticed using HDAT2 tool is that my drive HPA is enabled and it is FROZEN.
