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 were partioned in NTFS.


is this hard drive new ?
you could run the chkdsk utility
click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to recovery any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive there are many ways of running the chkdsk utility

click start right click on my computer you should see your drive usually C: select properties click tools check now tick both boxes automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery on any bad sectors or you could tick one box and wait until its finished then return and tick the other box
then select check now,start should schedule this task when restart

do not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage your computer
then defragment your hard

once all is finished right click on your hard drive select properties you will see the ammount of space used and free space

hope this helps you

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!

I am using segate u series ST340810 hard disk. when I am formatting this hard disk this hard disk does not shows partition to format and shows messege of disk cannot access what should I do?


Hello Ravindr,

After connecting the Segate Hard Drive in your computer go to Control Panel. In Control Panel you will the option Administrative Tool. In Administrative Tool open the Computer Management and you will find the number of attached Hard Drive and the Partitions they have. If the Hard Drive you have attached is not showing the partition then there may some physical damage with the Hard Drive media. Please get your Hard Drive checked by Segate professionals and then replace the Hard Drive with new one.

What to do with unreadable but recognised hard disk segate 400GB


Your Windows Xp bootable CD should have an option called "Format his file system using FAT32" while installing the OS. Use the option to format it. The only prob is that it creates only a single partiotion. After installing windows you can re-partition using a third party software such as Partition Magic(please note that it will not affect your windows installation as you can first re-size the windows drive to a lower capacity and then partition the un-allocated space.

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!
