Does the drive report the correct size in the BIOS?

It does sound almost like a hard drive problem. Try downloading one of these tools and doing a scan: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.

Check your drives. You may have done a clean install, but other drives may remain. They may even have your diastorous system image.

Go to my computer>left click and look at the drives.

If nothing surprising shows, you may want to look for hidden folders etc.

If nothing shows, you may want to go to the HD website and test your drive.
