I'm only getting 746 gb out of a new 3 tb internal hard drive


I can think of three possibilities:
  • It was pre-partitioned to that size, and more memory is available for another partiton (or to be added to that one).
  • You accidentally partitioned it to that size when you formatted it.
  • The hd isn't the size you thought.
You can right-click "Computer", click Manage, click left of "Storage" to expand, click "Disk Management". It should show you Disk 0 which is usually your C: drive, what percentage was used, then whether un-formatted/partitioned hd space is available.

Will not format. Shows as non recordable or non replayable


VIRUS OR TROJAN INFECTIONS:

Virus or trojans can run some process that keeps running in background. This not only harms the computer, but also prevents the pen drive from formatting as it shows that the drive is in use. Remove and re-insert thepen drive, don't double click on drive and cancel autorun operations if it starts automatically. Run a virus scan on pen drive, this will help fix the issue. Now format the pen drive.


CORRUPTED FLASH CHIPS ON PEN DRIVE:

If the pen drive is not detected at all, or shows a less capacity, then there are high chances that its a chipcorruption. Flash chips are the actual hardware components that save the data. A physical or electrical or electromagnetic damage to these chips make the pen drive faulty. This can happen because of voltage fluctuations and faulty USB ports. In such case, get the flash drive replaced if its under warranty as it can not be fixed otherwise.


FAKE PEN DRIVES:

Sounds a bit un-believable but true. There are a lot of pen drives in the market which are of very cheap quality which are fake copies of some known brands. Beware of such pen-drives. Always purchase pen-drives or memory-cards from a reliable source with bill and warranty to avoid any mess later.

Copy all the files from the pen-drive to your 'C:' drive.
Open "My Computer".
Right-mouse click on the icon for the pen-drive.
Click "Format".
Choose "quick-format".
When the "format" completes, it should show the full size.
Copy all the files back onto the pen-drive.

Unable to format 64 gb pen drive


Plug your pen drive into a computer that is on. In Windows Explorer, find the pen drive and right click on it and select "Properties". Select the "Tools' tab and then the "Check Now" button in the "Check the volume for errors"Box. Select both oxes and click "Start". Hopefully this will recover all of your drive. If not, the drive has been compromised (toasted). Then you should check with Kingston to get a replacement.
