Hi. I rencently bought and put together my new computer. The hard drive i have is a 320GB barracuda. In the BIOS it registers as being 320GB however during the OS installation it came up as about 127GB. Does this mean my disk is damaged? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me

Hi. I did a search and updated to SP2. Then with Partition Magic the missing portion of the HDD suddenly appeared and was able to make use of it. Thanks
