Sweet, thanks! I think that was the only button I didn't check out.....kinda like you always find something in the last place you look....of course, would you keep looking in more places after you found it? Something to think about......LOL

I bought a 500 GB HDD. I only got 465 GB. Because of the discrepancy.

I am missing ANOTHER 97.7 GB on top.


So the 500 GB HDD is missing 97.7 GB(unexplained) + 35 GB (off the top) = 132.7 GB MISSING

That's 26.4% of my original purchase.

This is WAY more than the difference between what they say you get and actually get.

I only lost 69 GB out the box on my SeaGate 1TB external HDD. No extra unexplained missing space on that drive.
It might be because the drive is already NTFS formated (more secure).

You will have to format in FAT32 to gain some space.
In partition wizard, the maximum FAT32 partition size I can create is about 350GB. That is just a limitation of PW i believe, but you can format your entire drive as NTFS, as seen I have a 930GB drive formatted as NTFS.
I didn't knew that limitation size to Fat32 was...
Got a 500Gb Ntfs drive (465,76GB real) but no such huge amount of unallocated space like yours.
Those 34Gb missing are reserved for the purpose of Ntfs management.

I have missing something in the OP previous post Could he have formated himself after he bought it as he didn't mentionned it, that's why he could have those 97Gb unallocated...by mistake.

Nevermind it sorted out. Thanks, this post brings very useful infos.
