i installed a 360gb hard drive and it shows just 297gb?
windows 7 upgrade from xp
Is that the reported capacity, or free space on the drive?
Windows XP reports my 1 TB WD Black HDD as having a 931 GB capacity under the disk's properties. It reports 1,000,202,240,000 bytes, but with 1,024 bytes per KB, that calculates out to 931 GB.
Manufacturer's usually just round to 1,000 bytes per KB, which can give an artificially inflated drive capacity number.
