Perform a disk check and see if you have a bad sector.

or you may try to defrag the HDD...

as a last resort you may try to back up the files you have in the HDD and have it reformatted

I replace the drive in a 120gb unit with a 250gb drive but only can see 120gb, how do I get to use the full 250 gb...

Hello I can think of two things

1. the USB device can just handle 120GB and gonna show it in windows. then its nothing you can do.

2. the windows has formated the driver in a wrong size.
go to my compute and look for the disk letter example E:

then go to control panel/administrive tools/and computer management.
expand diskmanagement and look if your driver is listed. check if its several partitions or if its just one 120GB. if its several delete them all and create a new with full sized disk.

check the diskmanagement and tell me what you see?

Thinkpad T42 Hard Disk problem


It seems the hard disk size will max out at 80GB with a 5,400 RPM speed according to IBM.

Im sorry to say that this means that it will not support a 120Gb hard drive.
