If you already have an 80GB installed, more than likely you can go as big as you want. There used to be a restriction because of the data built into OS's and hardware, but no more.

Fujitsu sata mhv2080bh 80GB drive partition in windows 7


Not sure what your question is but it seems like you are having some type of partition size issue with windows 7. I see that you say you have an 80GB drive which is very small so there is not much to partition on it.

My hard disk capacity is 80GB. It is seagate barracuda 7200.9, it is showing 32 gb instead of 80gb. I dont know how to fix this, but reading some experts answers i came to conclusion that this is a jumper...


Indeed. The problem is that you put the jumper and it limited the capacity of the hard drive to 32 gb.

Here is a picture that will help you put the jumper in the exact place:

I want to upgrade a 80gb to 500gb for a dell inspiron 9400.I used norton ghost to clon it and it reduced the size of the new Hd to 80gb as the original. I tried acronis with the same result.How can I solve...


I"ll give you a fast response one way. Most extreme also is to put your os disk back in the drive which will completely empty the drive. Make sure you have drivers in a convienent location.

You can't reduce a hard drive so I suspect the norton ghost clone is 80 gb on one area of the hard drive while the other 420 is unused. Press the function keys to go into the bios or check the computer: click start /computer /right click drive and properties to see how hard drive is being used.

Partision prblem


This is because an 80GB hard drive only has 75GB inside it will not be exact because of the way hard drive manufacturers compute the size. 80GB by name but only 75GB in real hard drive space. much like a if you have a flash drive or a portable uSB you will notice this also.

I`m unable to install windows 98 in seagate 80 gb ide barracuda hdd


For W98, if you create the bootdisk from within windows, you will need to go here to download the newest version of FDISK.EXE then copy it to the bootdisk, allowing it to overwrite the older version. This way you will have support for larger harddrives.

FDISK LIMITATION WITH 64GB DRIVES:
Why does FDISK not recognize my disk (or RAID array) which is larger than 64GB?

There is a bug in Microsoft's FDISK under Windows 95B, 98 and 98SE that can be corrected by downloading a newer version. See Knowledge Base Article Q263044 for more information.
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q263044

When you use Fdisk.exe to partition a hard disk that is larger than 64 GB (64 gigabytes, or 68,719,476,736 bytes) in size, Fdisk does not report the correct size of the hard disk.

The size that Fdisk reports is the full size of the hard disk minus 64 GB. For example, if the physical drive is 70.3 GB (75,484,122,112 bytes) in size, Fdisk reports the drive as being 6.3 GB (6,764,579,840 bytes) in size.

NOTE: This hotfix is not designed for 48-bit logical block addressing (LBA) hard disks, and it is not supported on hard disks larger than 137 GB. However, even if the drive is physically larger than 137 GB, if you create partitions smaller than 137 GB, this FDISK.EXE version will work correctly. (THE FORMAT COMMAND WILL SHOW THE DRIVE AMOUNT IN DOS TO BE OFF THE MARK, BUT WILL BE CORRECT WHEN YOU GET INTO WINDOWS ITSELF)

Direct English Version download:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/Win98/Update/8266R/W98/EN-US/263044USA8.EXE

This package installs the updated Fdisk.exe to the Windows\Command and Windows\Options\Cabs folders, on a computer running Windows 98 or Windows 98 Second Edition. If you are starting a computer from a Windows 98 Startup Disk in order to partition and format the hard disk, you should copy the updated Fdisk.exe from the Windows\Command folder to the Startup Disk, replacing the original Windows 98 or Windows 98 Second Edition version of Fdisk.exe on the Startup Disk.

My Book 1Tb will not let me put movies on it


I know exactly what your problem is. You are trying to add a file bigger than 4 GB on a fat32 external hard drive. You simply cant put something that big in there without breaking it into smaller bits. You could easily add a bunch of small files just not huge files bigger than 4GB.
Your solution would be to reformat your WD external drive to a ntfs. That can be done as easy as right clicking your external drive through my computer and highlighting "reformat". Good luck and I hope you dont forget this little thing about computers..sometimes when you get a good deal on pc hardware its for a reason :)
this is good for all hard drives including western digital

Larger HD


Hi,

Most hard drives of any brand would fit inside your laptop. The size is likewise "free for all". Though the rule of thumb would be "go next size higher" making a 120 Gb a logical choice. There is nothing stopping you thou in installing a 250 Gb or higher.

Good luck and kind regards.
