    I have a Seagate 200GB HDD and Windows XP Pro only shows it as 127GB? When I go into the bios mode, it shows it as 200GB. I download SP1, as I was told it should of fixed it but it's the same thing.


    Any help

    Isn't there something you need if you have a hard drive thats over 200GB? I'm not sure what, but I heard it from someone O.o

    Where does it show you it's 127GB, the drive properties?

    If so, right-click My Computer, select Manage, click Disk Management and see what it says in there.

    In disk management it will show the remainder of the size of the drive as unpartitioned space. You could either:
    1) Use partition magic to resize the 127gb partition to the full size
    or
    2) create a new partition which is the rest of the size using disk management. You will then have a 127gb partition and a (200-127)*gb partition.

    right click unallocated, and click partition,

    Or install partition magic 8 or 7, and go into it, right click the 127gb partition, and click resize, then make it the full size.

    I did I put the space into one HDD and it worked. However, it says I have 187GB and not 200GB? Did I do something wrong?

    nahh that&#39;s normal. Hard drive manufacturers don&#39;t meausre size right. They say that 1gb is 1000mb but in fact it is 1024mb, and that 1000kb is a mb, but it is 1024, and so on. This adds up to be quite a bit of lost space then tehre is also the space u loose (not much though) from the file system.

    My 40gb shown as 37gb
