I upgraded my hard drive and cloned my old info onto the Toshiba external hard drive. Now it only recognizes the capacity of the hard drive as 465 gb instead of 2 tb. How do I reset that back to 2 tb?


by up grading do you mean fitting a new hard drive
BY your statement you downloaded all of the data from the old hard drive onto an external 2tb hard drive ( to save everything I imagine )
if that is the case then the computer will only recognize the capacity of the new hard drive which would have been a 500gb unit
there is always a loss of capacity in a hard drive for internal workings and programs so what the computer is reading is most likely the capacity of the new hard drive
if you want to read the capacity of the external hard drive , you will have to click on it separately then go to properties and it will read total capacity and unused capscity

Toshiba disk drive mk6028gal


The hard disk drive (HDD) in your Toshiba laptop is the component that holds all the files and folders you use.
If you are running out of room on the hard disk drive because of all the programs you have installed, it may be time to replace it with a new one that has a larger capacity.
Replacing the hard disk drive on a Toshiba laptop is a fairly straightforward and simple process, as you only need to remove one other component to be able to reach the hard drive.

Save a backup copy of any file or program that you will need from the original hard disk drive to an external device such as a CD-RW or USB flash drive.
Shut down the Toshiba laptop's operating system completely.
Disconnect the power cable if it was plugged in and then close the top screen lid.
Flip the entire unit over so that the bottom end of the laptop case is facing towards you.

Hold down the release latch for the Toshiba laptop's battery.
Slide the laptop battery out of the case and then put it aside.
Locate the screw at the upper-left corner of the case that holds the CD or DVD drive into place.
Remove the screw and set it aside. Grab the edge of the CD or DVD drive and then pull it away from the Toshiba laptop case. Set the drive aside.
Remove the four screws holding the large square plastic cover over the hard disk drive at the lower left end of the laptop case.
Lift the square plastic cover off the laptop case and set it aside so that you can see the metal plate that covers the hard disk drive.
Take out the screws holding the metal plate in place.
Lift the metal plate out of the case and set it aside.
Remove the two screws at the top edge of the hard disk drive and then the two screws at the bottom edge of the hard disk drive.
Disconnect the hard drive from the motherboard by sliding it out towards you.
Lift the hard disk drive out of the case and set it aside.
Push the new hard drive into the open slot and then reconnect the four screws.
Set the metal plate back on top of the new hard disk drive and then attach its screws.
Put the plastic cover on and reattach the cover's screws.
Slide the CD or DVD drive back into its port and then reconnect the screw.
Put the battery back into the Toshiba laptop.
Turn the laptop over and open up the screen.
Power the computer on. Insert the recovery disk that came with the Toshiba laptop into the CD or DVD drive.
Follow the operating system installation instructions that will appear on the screen.
Transfer the backup copies of the files you saved earlier from the external device to the new hard drive.

Too small capacity


Depends on what you are using the hard drive for. For example if this hard drive is going to be used for multimedia then I would recommend a hard drive around 120Gb to 1TB, but if it's for a small office with MS Windows XP installed it should be just enough to host the operating system and a limited amount of programs, hope this help, best of luck

I am trying to partition and format 2 identcal Toshiba Laptop SATA HDD's. Using Windows Disk Management and Easeus softwares, both softwares are listing each harddrive capacity at 55gb. The actual capacity...


You would want to delete all partitions from the disk. That will get the raw space back. From there, partition; then, format. If you need more help, please ask, but from the experience level able; it sounds like you are right on track.

Where is info stored on a external hard drive


An external data-storage device has a few parts:
* a USB cable
* an enclosure
* a disk-drive, exactly as used inside a desktop or a laptop
* a USB-to-disk-drive adapter

So, if you open the enclosure, you can see an "internal" disk-drive.
You could even disconnect the disk-drive, and then connect a much-larger disk-drive,
in order to increase the capacity of the device (and to replace an out-of-warranty disk-drive
by a new in-warranty disk-drive).

My toshiba does not boot up


I do not think it is a HDD problem. When you turn it on, are you able to see something on the screen or not? If not, then it is probably problem of the motherboard.

Sattelite A50 has an 42000 rpm IDE Harddisk, buy 40GB or 80 GB.

Is it under warrenty?

I want to increase the storage capacity my Hard disk.


hi,

You can use SATA hard disk.

you said you already have 40gb. so, your pentium 4 mother board can work with full performance with upto 80 gb.

My suggestion for you is to get another 40 gb and install it ,so it makes 80 gb as total.

Other option is , There are external hard disks available for reasonable cost. you can go for it.

Your RAM is ok too.

Hope my info helps you.
Bye.
