Umm, there is no such thing?

May I ask where you read about inflated hard drives? If we look at the article, we may be able to figure out what you are referring to.

Besides, if you don't know what it is, why do you want to buy one?

I am a student assistant working in asset management for the state of California's Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development, and my manager said to research the cost of 1 Tara bite hard drives, 32 gig flash drives and inflated hard drives. I couldn’t figure out what it was and today after reading your answer (a member of an IT group I applied to ask what an inflated HD was because I couldn’t find it anywhere on line; which I applied to a week ago) I found that the requestor didn’t know how to describe the size of a hard drive that would make her computer work with Win 7, so she told my manager she needed an Inflated HD. In conclusion our department decided not to do memory upgrades and to just purchase new PCs.

Probably mis-communication. By any chance is this person (the lady) from a non-English speaking country? If she is, what she means is a large capacity drive (inflated) - :)

"But seriously, folks." The phrase may have come from an article on "inflated hard drive sizes," commenting that a package that says 750 GB contains a drive that shows up as having 698.6 GB. The old Gigabyte vs. Gibibyte conflation.

(couldn't resist the minor misuse of that last word)

It says something like 750GB but its no where near that because it's 750000 megabytes and a gigabyte is 1024 and not 1000, companies do this to suck your money dry!
