Hi,this is a problem which nearly all of us face ,tht the menory which system shows is less than the capacity of the hard disk. The reason for this is because the hard drive is not fragmented. memory spots shows as if they are filled but actually they are free this is the reason why memory appears to be less(62 instead of 80 GB). The solution is very simple,just download any free disk fragmentor from www.filehippo.com and fragment your full hard disk.It will take aroung 4 hrs to fragment full har disk but onece done will solve your problem as well as your computer speed will improve.
cheers

I would suspect that Windows is screwing things up, your laptop cdrom drive should be "d" drive and your portable usb drive should be the "e" drive. You could try to change the usb to "e" in disk management, failing that I would reboot the laptop with usb drive connected to see if Windows straighten things out.

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.

Hard disk acess problem


Hi, What the message mean is that Windows can not read/understand the filing system (something like the Table of Contents in a book) and therefore do not which and where are your files in the 80Gb. A few things you can try: 1. Run Windows Scandisdk on the Hitachi 80Gb; 2. Run any third party disk check/utility such Norton Disk Doctor. Alternately, you can use a file recovery software (such as GetDataBack) to recover/copy all your important files from the 80Gb and transfer them to another mass storage device. Thereafter, you can re-partition and re-format the said Hitachi to start new/fresh/clean. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turnes up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
