Hey there,
A hard drive, especially a new one, might need to be formatted before use to show the proper amount of data available for use. Sometimes a hard drive might malfunction and not show the proper amount of free space. formatting should also solve this problem, Before you go and format your hard drive understand that by formatting it you will lose all data that is stored on it, so if you have anything important, take it off first.
here is a detailed guide to reformatting your hard drive based on your operating system

Hope this helps!!

Connect the LACIE.
Click Start
Right-click My Computer
Click Manage
Expand the Storage branch of the tree
Click Disk Management (local)
Does it show a bar-graph for the LACIE?
What do you see?

Lacie 1tb ext hd. drive does not show in disk


Your external drive has 2 parts, the hard drive, which is just a normal hard drive you would find in any computer, and the usb bridge, which connects the hard drive interface (either ide or usb) to the usb or firewire or esata or whatever. Sounds like one of these are bad. Does the computer see the bridge? it should show up as a mass storage device in device manager and the safely remove usb devices dialog. If not, then get a new enclosure for the drive. These range from 25-100 dollars. If the bridge does show up, take apart the enclosure and pull the drive out and try hooking it up as a second drive in your computer. If it works there, then you need a new enclosure. If not, then you need a new drive.

My LaCie 1 TB shows that I only have 9.99 MB of space. Why?


You didn't run the EXE that comes on the drive.
I made the same mistake, but did a windows format before running it, so I lost the exe.
