The 19 missing gigabytes is probably being used by the operating system.
System restore will eat a lot of space after a while.
Also 160GB, all register as 149GB.

Drive only reports 56gb to partition - missing 100gb! How do I access the remaining space?


Click Start
Right-mouse click "My Computer".
Click "Manage".
Expand the "Storage" part of the tree.
Click "Disk Management".
View the diagram for your disk-drive.
Does it show the 56GB partition, followed by 100GB of "unallocated" space,
or does it show one (approximately) 160GB partition?

If the former, backup all the files in the partition (copy to an external disk-drive, or copied to DVD-recordable disks, or to another computer).
Then, use "Disk Management" to delete that "small" partition, and to define a new partition that "spans" the entire volume, and to initialize the partition.
Then, copy the "saved" files back onto the drive.

I cloned a hard drive which was 30gb onto my orignal hard drive which 160 gb now my original hard drive thinks its only 30gb. But the bios system says 160gb how do I repair that?


Hi. What OS are you using? The un-recognize space can be recovered by adding partition to the harddisk. If you are using Windows, you can see the empty space in disk management.

Let me know if you need help with disk partitioning and what OS you are using so I can write specific solution. Thanks.

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!
