External HDD capacity
When I plug my external HDD into the workstation (or server) at school the capacity displays at slightly less than 500Gb, which is correct. However, when plugged into my home computer I can only see 232Gb, which incidentally is the displayed size of the internal HDD.
I want to use the external as a backup drive in preparation for a Win7 installation, so the displayed size is not really a problem. But why is it not showing the full capacity?
What is your home OS? What format is the hdd, FAT32? NTFS?
Home OS is XP Pro SP2. Format of HDD is NTFS
