If you are comfortable in booting the system in dos mode and running dos commands, The hard disk can formated through it. If not then you can download a Partition Manager software (trail version link ) Using which you redistribute the data into different drives or Add/delete drives.

Rate the solution as appropriate !

What's your problem?I have bought a 160 GB segate baracuda harddisk and attached to it, formatted. But machine shows 149.05 GB in place of 160 GB. Whether it is hard disk fault? and all drives partion...


To say it simply: That's totally OK.

The manufacturer is using the BINARY total AND the system is by formatting it, also using a small portion of it. It's the difference between GB and GiB


Check it yourself with an USB memory stick, you KNOW the max capacity, but what is available after formatting (empty stick)? Less!

Maximum size of hard disk supported


Hi Bijay.
Neither is at fault. Please click on this Seagate link:
http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=How_To_Install_and_Troubleshoot_ATA_Hard_Drives&vgnextoid=559e5b1142aec010VgnVCM100000dd04090aRCRD
Scroll down to: Partitioning the drive in Windows XP / Windows 2000 (for systems where this is the 2nd drive in the system).
Follow the instruction on the web site.
This Seagate web site will help you setup the Seagate 160 drive.

If you feel the drive is still at fault you can run Seagate’s SeaTools. Click on the next link:
http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools
This software will check the 160GB drive.
(Follow the online instructions for), SeaTools for DOS.

In a Windows XP system & using a FAT 32 & a cluster size of 16kb instead of NTFS. Windows will see the total size of the drive but can only access 149GB of drive space. 11GB of drive space will be used by the FAT. File Allocation Table. The FAT is windows guide to every cluster on the drive.
XP uses NTFS & sets each cluster to 4kb. This 4kb size lowers the total usable GB size & uses more GB's for the FAT. You're 127GB size may be correct for a Win XP system using a NTFS file system. The FAT is using 33GB of drive space as a locator for every cluster on the 160GB drive.
Help with understanding the NTFS file system: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/expert/russel_october01.mspx

Bijay if you are still having trouble understanding please post any questions here.

Good luck!
