1tb hdd only showing 500gb Tags: Hard Drives Cases Biostar Storage Last response: July 14, 2011 6:50 AM in Storage Share KingKenny July 11, 2011 7:27:06 PM I have a 1tb hdd with a biostar mobo. But, only 500gb is showing. Is it possible my mobo only supports 500gb? If this is the case, is there anyway to save stuff to that other 500 gigs? I'm running out of room on the first 500gb.

The model number will tell us for sure. fzabkar a c 262 G Storage July 14, 2011 6:50:27 AM I'm wondering whether the drive has a HPA. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
