Google "127GB Limit". Unless it's a pretty big coincidence it sounds like the XP Mode setup created a virtual 32-Bit LBA partition which is not properly reverting back to the Win 7 standard 48-Bit LBA. As I recall, back in the early Win XP days it wasn't until SP1 that this was corrected.

Not much help, assuming I'm on to something, but it might be a lead in the right direction.

One other things is that Windows Explorer is notorious for not including everything in subfolders when you highlight a gob of stuff and the Right-Click>>Properties. It could be a simple computer "accounting error".
