    Check to see how windows sees the drive through disk manager, it should be the correct size there. Sounds like the partitions are incorrect (multiple partitions = multiple drive letters). Re-partition and format and you should be good to go. If it's a USB external drive then one of the partitions may contain software from the manufacturer.

  5. disk management can be accessed through the control panel/admin tools/computer manager/disk management or by typing diskmgmt.msc in the run box under the start menu, it's a bit different for each OS, but you should be able to find it.
