  1. Goto disk management and check the partition. Make sure, there is only one partition that has the full drive and not any unallocated space.
  2. A 500GB drive only has about 465 GB of usable formatted space. It looks like(as stated above) that you may have a 365GB partition and 100GB of empty(non-partitioned) space.
  3. ah thanks, so how do i know if the drive is partitioned?
