Hi there, i have a acomata external hard drive, i did format and now its showing me that i have a 7.50GB disk space but actual disk space is 120GB. Can you please help me to find out why is it like that?

format again (assuming your using xp) make sure that the format is FAT-32 or FAT-16 and that the size is 120gb. Then check the drive properties and see if any space has been used. if so how much then post that and i'll work from there.

WD 500 GB resized by Norton Ghost Restore to 120 GB and can not get it to original size.

You should partition your new drive first to say 160Gb (you lose a bit after formatting) for 1st partition and the remaining capacity for the 2nd partition. Because your Ghost image is 120Gb it can only restore to a partition of 120Gb, that is why it shows 120Gb on a 500Gb on a single partition.
You may be able to fix this problem without starting again by using Disk Manager (from Control Panel - Admoinistrative Tools) to create a 2nd partition on the hard drive and format this partition.

Verbatim 120GB external hard drive

goto Control Panel, administrative tools, Computer Management, Disk Management, If it pops up a new disk install wizard follow the directions in it. If not then find the new disk that has no partition on it, right click on that drive to create a partition, then right click on the drive to format it, if it hasent done so already.
