View Full Version : New/old hard drive question

01-11-2009, 05:50 PM
Hi all. Just reinstalled an old 40 GB hard drive onto my system. Formatted OK. When I check it, in My Computer, it shows a 7.35 MB and a 18.6 GB hard drive. Bit strange, don't you think?? Can you please advise how a can do a 50:50 split? Thanks, Ian.

Make sure its not set to 32 GB (the jumper on it). How old is the system, you installed it in?

Sorry should have said its a 40 GM IDE set up as slave. Another 40 GM is set up as Master. That shows 18.6 GB on both drives. System is an S3100AN Compaq Presario refurbished by a profession compter shop.
