External Hard Drive reduced max capacity

hi guys,

as far as i remember, i do have an external HDD with a 250G capacity... i bought an enclosure then...
i think i have this almost 3 years now...

i have noticed lately that max capacity is now 150G...

i mean, could this be possible?

i am really sure that i have a 250G external HDD....

thanks

Where are you reading that 150 GB figure? A command prompt? Window Explorer? Diskpart? Other?

Post a screen shot of Windows Disk Management.

Is there a label on the disk that states the capacity as 250GB? I do not want to insult your memory, but you might have just remembered the size incorrectly. It happened quite often to me with memory sticks.
