Question about Vantec NexStar-3 External 3.5inch SATA&USB2.0 Hard Drive Enclosure (Black) (NEWITEM58149860) Drive Case

1 Answer

NexStar hard drive doesn't recognize its size

I set up a 80 Gb WD800 hard drive in a NexStar 3 a few months ago and after some setup procedures related to file system types I copied my laptop to it by just drag and drop C; to F:. As luck would have it, my hard drive crashed last week and after installing a new one, F: only shows 3.30 Gb free space on 3.39 Gb total size on this 80 Gb drive! Yet when I search further on the Volumes tab is shows 76317 MB capacity with 72848 MB unallocated with MBR partiton style. In the Volume window F: has only 3475 MB size. I've checked the Show hidden files and folders in Folder options and I've changed the file type from FAT32 that it first recognized to NTFS with no difference. Why can't I fully access this HD? I fear it is corrupted and the data is lost, but I'm hoping it's just hidden.

Maxtor 80 gb portable hard drive copying problem


Unless the data on the maxtor is very important You should format the drive, assuming you are using windows, go to my computer, right click on the drive, it should show the option to format. If the info is very important, my advice take it to a info recovery business.

320 GIG Hard Drive now thinks it is an 80 GIG hard drive


Enter your BIOS setup and check what the BIOS sees for hard-drive. It may not be assessing the drive size correctly so you may have to force it by manually entering the data it needs to see the drive.

Use a partition manager to see if the drive is recognized. If it is not recognized, you may not have the jumper setting correct. If it is a master drive, set the jumper for master drive. same for slave or cable select
