WD3200ME-01 Passport size diskspace problem

Hi Geeks,
I am using a 320 GB WD Passport HD with Dell Latitude D620. All is ok except diskspace problem. When i look free diskspce in HD, it says 212 GB free. I have VPC image of Microsoft CRM just a little more than 10 GB which wish to copy to passport, when i try copy that it says Not enough diskspace and prompts me to run a disk cleanup on passport. I donot wish to move in chunks by doing any RAR packages, because i already got this VPC in form of RAR packages, and when i tried to build VPC file on passport directly that also fails because of diskspace. If somebody could somebody help, that would be GR88888888888.

FYI, i have single partition primary C: drive with 1.1 GB freespace only
ciao

To format the drive to allow files larger then 4GB: Open up My Computer, Right click on the Western Digital Drive. Select Format from the list. Under file System, select NTFS. Under format options Check Quick Format. Click Start to format.

Warning! Formatting will delete all data and files on the drive. Make sure to transfer all your files to another drive before preforming a format!

Yea um for this problem it mite help if you do a disk cleanup you might have a lot of **** that is taking up wanted space, if you do a disk cleanup this wont get rid of your files it will just clean up things that are on there that shouldn't be there and maybe if you do a virus check on the HDD it might help to

Well, that IBM is from 2004, the usb port and drivers is to old for the WD 320 who requries USB 2.0. Thats why your IBM dosent recognize it, your IBM getting wrong signal from the WD thrue the old usb port.
I dont think you gona make those items to work properly togher M8, sorry
