Question about Intel D845GLLY Motherboard
I have intel 845 glly mother board on which already a 40 GB segate baracuda harddisk is installed. Now I have bought a 160 GB segate baracuda harddisk and attached to it, formatted. But machine shows 127 GB in place of 160 GB. Whether it is hard disk fault or machine fault?
Neither is at fault. Please click on this Seagate link:
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:
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.
