Maybe you have available unpartitioned space left in the hard disk. To check this: 1. Right click on the "Computer" icon on the desktop and select "manage" 2. After the Computer Management window appears, select Disk Management. It should show you if you have any unpartitioned drive space. 3. You can up or format your unpartitioned spaces from hereon. may be your harddisk is corrupted and has space 296GB only or sometimes all drives contains some space for system file in that space is hidden
Most movies are about 4.5GB to 8GB, this is probably why your not able to put a movie on it. Secondly a lot of flash drives say its 4GB but really its 3.5-4GB. There must be something your overlooking as file size for ti to take up that much space. go to the properties of each file and look at the folder size, might find something you missed that's taking up more space.
The short answer to your question is "Yes" however, all information on the drive would be lost. As a work-around, store/move more information to the D: volume. Perhaps install any new software programs to D: rather than C:
The original power supply is "SB2D-020-1HA SIMPLETECH AC ADAPTER 12V 1.5A FOR EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE" . Just find a replacement with the correct size plug (center positive) that supplies 12v DC at 1.5amps (1500ma)
The main problem you have is that the file system of your hard drive is FAT32 not NTFS. You need to change it to NTFS in order to work. Here is how.
>> Copy all your data (the 50+GB you used) on to another hard drive
>> Now from My Computer
>> RIGHT CLICK
>> CHOOSE FORMAT
>> CHOOSE NTFS FILING SYSTEM
>> instead of FAT32 and
>> give your hard drive a nice full FORMAT
This will take a while and WARNING you will LOSE all your DATA so DOUBLE CHECK BEFORE YOU START THAT YOU COPIED EVERYTHING.
Hope that this Fixya Helps you :)
(please take some time to rate solution thanks)
It has to do with the way computers count. Computers count in binary where we count in decimal. Hard drive makers list there drives capacities in the decimal format, where windows lists it in it's binary format. Wikipedia has a good explanation.
Also, the drive may have some preinstalled software on it that could be taking up a bit of space (it's usually not much).
