I'm adding a 2nd drive to my PC which is a Maxtor 200GB/ATA133 drive. So after finally figuring out the cabling and pins, I have gone into the Computer Management > Disk Management to format and create partition.
I've right clicked on the Disk 1 column to "Create Volume". When I go through the menu the volume size gives me a total of 128 GB. Where did 72 GB go. I know there is overhead needed for the drive but "72 GB". Is this right. Is there another way to format the drive and get more space.
