OK, so I just got one of these new F4s, nominal capacity 2TB. It's showing in W7 x64 (GPT style) as 934.41GiB
Of course, 2TB is not 2 TiB, I get that. And formatted capacities are always lower too. But 2,000,000,000,000 / 1024 is still 1,953,125,000 and even allowing for formatting I should still havee a couple hundred more GiB on the drive, I reckon.
So, where'd the other half of my drive go?
Any diagnostics, really obvious things I've missed and other helpful advice greatly appreciated.

What have you got in disk manager?
A single 934GB partition that apparently occupies the entire drive. I think the problem might actually be the BIOS; I just checked and it's a) only auto detecting 1000GB and b) doesn't have a manual setting.
Thanks, that thread looks promising. I guess it's a known issue with the BIOS? Ironically I only really came in here in the first place because I got a sudden bout of paranoia RE: the F4 after I noticed a bunch of threads about it's firmware...
That capacity restore tool must not like W7x64 or something. I get an "error opening driver" error and then the selection window is all garbled.
