I have a Verbatim Clon 500GB external hard drive which only holds 4.65 GB; why??


Windows 7Might not be formatted correctly. Check Disc Management under Administrative tools. This will give the true size including space that has not assigned as a partition.

Dont show the space


While flash drives are advertised with a capacity of 2.00GB or some other rounded size they are never actually this size. Flash memory is cylindrically rounded off, at a smaller size. Also some of the space is reserved for system files and boot sectors. The actual capacity is typically between 80% and 90% of the advertised space.

Why the eff would I buy a 500 GB and get only 128? if you know it only operates @ 128 smooth why advertise 500? I bought a 500 GB internal to have 500 Gigs. I returned the first one because I thought it...


Your computer may be older that when a 500 gb drive was even thought of, if that is the case you may have to go to the manufacturers support/driver site and download and flash your BIOS to accept the higher GB drives. Most cites have a BIOS updates for their models. Since that information is not included in your explanation, I cannot give you the link, if you want to srite back and include the computer name and model number as well as the operating system, I will try to furnish you with the link for the BIOS update. When you click on the BIOS file make sure the unit has a charged battery and is on AC power.

My USB 4gb is not working when i plug it in my Computer it says that "device not recognized"


There are several USB recovery programs available. While I don't endorse any one in particular, I tend to stay away from "free" ones, since I believe in the axiom "there's no such thing as a free lunch" since you don't know what's in it for them.

You could try this company, which advertises a free download (but I suspect they are really a shareware company so it's possible that they will want money for a more expansive version) which may make it possible to fix your drive in one instance at least.

If this data is important to you, it's probably worth spending 30 or 40 dollars to avoid a repeat.in the future, because USB drives get corrupted from time to time.

Anyway, here is the link:

Low capacity problem


Hi,

Mostly this is affected by match used to construct the drive geometry. The narrative below is courtesy Tiger Direct of Canada and is their copyrighted content.

When we ask our customers if an Answer is satisfactory, the requested rating is four diamonds for a thorough answer. Hopefully, you will find the below content achieves that mark.
  1. The way size is calculated and displayed.
  2. Any "Partitions" on the disk will change the total in a specific partition.
  3. Hidden files and folders decrease available space.
  4. Compression increases the apparent size, but not the physical size.
  5. Drives larger than the OS or Drivers natively supports.
hddsizescreen.jpgFirst, the definition of a megabytes (or gigabytes) is a unit of data storage capacity measured in 1,048,576 bytes (or 1024KB). The larger the numbers, the more apparent the size difference will be when listing the size as megabytes (or gigabytes) versus bytes. Actually, both numbers are correct. The noticeable difference is due to the 1024KB definition of a megabyte. This is why a 95.3GB hard drive can also be listed as having 102 billion bytes of total space. Just think of it as "round off" In the screen shot at right: The first number is the total number of bytes, the second number is based on the number of megabytes or gigabytes.
Second, some computers have a non-DOS hard drive partition that is used for features such as Save to Disk, Hibernation, or Recovery. This partition is not normally reported by the operating system, although it can be viewed using a disk partition utility. This is very common on desktops and laptops. NOTE: Partition information will be created or formatted automatically during initial system setup and a system recovery.
Third, by default, all system files are hidden and cannot be seen. This may adversely affect the reporting of available hard drive space. You can set your Folder Options so you view system and hidden files and folders, but do be careful as changes to system files can adversely affect your system.
Fourth, if you turn on Compression for a drive, it will increase reported free space and used space, but since compression is based upon the actual contents, this number is not fixed, but will change as files are added or changed.
Fifth, older operating systems did not support some of today's larger drives, so the total space reported may be much smaller than the drive specifications.
It is also worth noting that bad sectors are corrected by your operating system and can change the total drive space, free space, or used space as well.
So as long as a drive is reporting a value approximately close to the specification value, you can be comfortable that you received the right drive and that you are getting to correct data storage. Of course, tuning of your drive's partitions and options can yield optimal values, but this is not something for the average user to explore.
