Which is smaller, gigabytes or megabytes


megabits is smaller
if you want to back up 2.83 gb get a usb flash drive
get a 5gb unit
usb sticks (flash drive) rated at 5 gb will hold 4.5 gb of data as the rating is the total capacity but all flash drives require a small amount of space to work so the actual amount of data capacity is always less than the stated size on the flash drive
the capacity rating is-- smallest to largest --bytes, mega bytes , gigabytes, and terabytes

I have 320GB hard dsik capacity. But yesterday i have given by laptop to format and install OS(Windows 7). But now i am able to see only 296GB. Please let me know what will happen to remaining space.


There are many reasons.......

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

Good morning, I have a 16gb memory stick, having deleted all files it still show as 11gb used and only 5gb remaining, can you offer any advice. many thanks simon


I think it could be due to virus activity. Some virus make the contents of the drive hidden, thats why user can't see the files and the space available for use is less than the capacity.
It is suggested that go to FOLDER OPTIONS - and seclect SHOW HIDDEN FILES. It may show the hidden files. Otherwise, if you dont have any vital data on the drive, just format it. Hope this would fix the issue and you would be able to enjoy the full capacity of the disk

Let me know if any further clarification is required. Hope this helps! Dont forget to rate the solution!!

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.

HARD DISK CAPACITY PROBLEM


When your hard disk capacity says 320, that does not mean 320 GB fo free space, Total capacity is 320 GB, from this space required for the partition table, boot sector, etc will be taken, Dont worry only the available free space will be shown.

This is not a problem, so dont worry.

SAMSUNG IDE HDD SP0411N (40GB)


Hi,

Three possible reasons:
1. Your IDE cable is defective or is not seated/plug in correctly. Try to replace or re-seat/re-insert;
2. The on-board disk management of the hard disk is corrupted/defective. There is no remedy except to replace the PCboard or the entire hard disk;
3. Your motherboard BIOS/CMOS needs to be flashed and/or something is wrong with the IDE interface.

Of the 3, # 1 is the most common.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

good luck and kind regards.

After clearing CMOS and it still doesn't work, try to run FDISK on the drive. Delete partitions and create a new one. There could be a hidden partition which could be using the other hard drive space. Restart PC and then format again. This should allow you to use the full hard drive capacity.
