Then you will have to go back and delete all partitions that were made to get all of the hard drive space for the operating system that will be installed on it

Just continue in formatting the hard drive because this can be cause by some malware that's why your hard drive is just showing that size and after you format it everything will be clean, the other reason why the hard drive is just shwoing that small size even though its a big size there's a possibility of bad sector on the hard drive so don't use the quick format when you reformat the drive so the bad sector will be fix also...

My computor wont get to windos and declares opareting system not found. faliue. please contect me to idans84@gmail.com


Most times when this type of problem arise it always because the harddisk is damaged but on another hand you should try to format and reload your harddisk with another operating system first thereafter if the harddisk doesnt accept the installation of the Operating system then you can fanalise that the harddisk is dmaged and you need to buy another..

Hi my Transcend 320 GB harddisk is not getting detected. Storejet 320Gb


hello

connect the USB external hard disk to usb port by the way disconnect other working harddisks
available on the system, boot the system with bootable cd/floppy go to command prompt and run
chkdsk on this drive

Also download "mbrfix" connect all working harddisks along with the nondetecting harddisk and run mbrfix for the USB defective harddisk

Try using different USB data transfer cable, if power source adapter is used check for rated power output in multimeter for this adapter, if found defective replace it with new/good adapter with same
specifications

Bad luck if harddisk controller has failed you have to go in for new harddisk

GOOD LUCK ooo

How do i fix the cannot find the correct hard disk problem in my PS3


Test you console with another harddisk to see if it detects the harddisk.

Also try a low level format on the harddisk with a pc so to ensure that there
is nothing left on the harddisk, when reinserted in the ps3, the ps3 needs
to fomat the harddisk, quick fomat will be enoug.
If the original harddisk is still not detected, then your harddisk is defective
and needs to be replaced, if the console also doen't detect the new harddisk then your ps3 needs to return to Sony because the sata controller on the motherboard of your ps3 is defective.

Memory full due to photos in wrong drive


Hi! It seems that your out of harddisk space. That's why your computer memory also maxed out because your computer memory gets virtual space in your harddisk. Try to free up your harddisk or delete the unwanted files. GOOD LUCK
