XP Showing HardDrive Size Smaller Than Physical Size - Why?
Posted on 2007-03-18
Hi all -
Scenario is this - XP Pro XP2 w/ updates. Three Western Digital harddrives - 1 x 120g, 2 x 320g.
XP shows the 120 as 111.79 and the 320's are shown as 298.09 ....
I've just bought the 2nd 320 as a recovery disk to image the first 320 to - and it tells me it's too small!
So .... XP is telling me 298.09 .... does it just 'report' it that way for some damn reason OR are my 320's acutally physically smaller than what's on the label and if so does anyone know why?
(Accept my appologies in advance if this type of question has been covered before but I could not find a similar question in my searches.)
Thanks very much in advance .....
(anyone want a week old 320? Grrrrrrrr!!)
