Well what brand is the HD? right click my computer then click manage. Look at what it says about your HD and post it here

You may have put a jumper on the HDD that limits its size; try removing all jumpers.

or the obvious... what was the size reported before windows was installed? it could be a drive failure

You may have partitioned it on setup by mistake?

Oh,, no worries. I had the same experience when i reloaded my Windows XP. My 50GB movies took the drive but just cannot detected and show themselves.

Finially some friend recommend me to use this recovery program here http://www.icare-recovery.com/ and retrieved all the files.

My friend got this program from giveawayoftheday.com for free and recommended this one to me.
