Windows 7: Hard drive capacity dropped after Windows reinstallation

14 Apr 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit

Hi Computer0304,

Can you please post the model no. of your DELL computer?

I smell something suspicious after having a second look at your first screenshot at post #1.

The computer information shows "RAID Support - RAID 1 (Mirroring)"

Did it come with two HDDs and could it be that your professional had removed one? !!!!!!!!

I only hope I am not overreacting.

Good also to know that you have a legal version of Windows. That gives you the freedom to reinstall when and and if you want to. ( If it was a pirated version you would have got stuck.)
