Sounds like your have a 9.99mb partition on your drive with the rest being free space.

If you are running windows goto the Computer Management program and check under storage> disk management to see if your 500gb drive is there. if it is delete the existing partitions and reformat the entire disk to NTFS

Why does my new 500gb lacie setup say 375.7 MB, Zero free?


Hi Anon
I think this is the setup disk, your 500gb disk will have have hundreds of gigabytes of free space, remember that 375.7 MB is roughly a third of 1 gigabyte.

ONLY 650 MB OUT OF ONE TERABYTE lacie all terrain


For anyone else that runs into this issue, you don't need the EXE.

Follow the instructions on here to get to the Storage control panel area on your computer so you can view partitions:

Locate your LaCie drive, and delete the small partition that shows as "Healthy". Once you delete that, you should have a large "Unallocated" space. Format that normally using either FAT32 or NTFS. Your drive will now have its full allocation (which with a 500GB drive, should be around 465GB, give or take depending on the system accessing it).

Storage capacity only shows 9.99 mb and its a 2TB LaCie d2 Quadra v2.1 7200RPM U. Where's all the storage space?


It is possible that the disk space is not partitioned or the drive has crashed there by making the partition unreadable. Formatting the disc should resolve this problem. Just connect it to your computer and use this tool to format it.
http://www.partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html
Install it, launch the software, click on your external hard drive, click on the raw space on the drive, and click create partition. Choose the file system NTFS and click save changes. It will format it and you should be able to use your drive again. If you have any further questions please let me know, before you give me a bad rating, so that I can help you fix it.

You may have partitioned your hard drive. Have a look at your Computer Management Console by right clicking My Computer > Manage. Then under Storage, select Disk Management.

Hi I have a Lacie External Harddrive 500gb, when I connect my hard drive to my computer it does not open, instead it gives me a message saying that " disk is not formatted"?


The disk was probably dropped or jolted. You can consider the drive bad now. The arm is broken inside. You can format the drive but most likely it won't work after that. Getting the data retrieved can cost up to $2500-$5000.
