Maxtor 30gig HD is recognized as much smaller.
Posted on 2003-03-22
Hi, I have a Pentium III, 500mhz pc running windows 2000. I have just bought a Maxtor Diamondmax 30gig HD which is only being recognized as being 7.85gig. Does anyone know why this might be? The disk was auto-recognized by the computer when I put it in, stating this capacity from square 1. I configured the disk within the 'disk management tools' (naming, format, letter assign etc), expecting that perhaps formatting might work, but it remains the same. Is fully functional other than in size.
Thanks for any help,
