Unlocking an 80 GB HDD to make it 120 GB?
A friend of mine just told me his uncle (supposed to be a computer wiz) said that 80 GB hard drives start out as a 120 GB hard drive. But, the company will "lock out" 40 gigs to make it an 80. Evidently, there are programs to unlock this extra 40 gigs on your hard drive. Is this true or is his uncle smokin something? If it's true, how would I go about doing this?
