I have just bought a new computer and am running win 7.
The C drive is fine but my external drive Maxtor 500gb connected by USB, is showing 465gb as used space when this is empty.
In Disk management th drive is shown as 16gb, but in defrag screen the full 500gb are shown, can anyone tell me what is using the 464gb that is empty?
My previous computer running XP was showing the external drive correctly !
Any help would be appeciated.
Thanks for response - could you explain a little more simply please.
I notice my C drive is correct showing gigabytes (which as a hard drive I assume using decimal).
So why is my D drive (external) not also using decimal?
Are you saying in your reply that the 500gb drive is correct in showing as 16gb?
