    HD is 1000GB but I see only 433GB


    Hi,
    Iím trying to replace my HD (150GB) WXP.
    C: = 30GB
    D: = 120GBdrives).
    I took an image (Norton Ghost) of the system, replaced the HD (new HD is 1000GB), mounted my image.
    Now I see
    C: = 88GB
    D: = 343

    Any idea how to fix it?

    Thanks, Vl654321

    have you tried going into disk management and seeing if the rest of it is there [just might be unpartitioned/unused space].

    Is your XP fully up-to-date? Older OS and some BIOS may be limiting the amount of usable space you have on the drive.

    Run a program like partition magic or something that will show you all your partitions. You might have a inactive partition, sometimes this happens when you change things up.

    • DonR disagrees : disk management should show any "inactive partitions" [i think you meant hidden partition] or unpartitioned space.

    check to see if the entire harddrive space is showing up in your BIOS. [as Doug G has hinted towards]
