In other words, the manufacturer claims that there is more space on the drive than there really is. Also, some OSs will not recognize drives that large automatically. I suggest that you look into the other threads describing this problem as I am really not the best at explaining this. Hope this helps.
Wrong. He should not be loosing 70g/b. A 200g should show 190 or so. 2000/XP will see that drive no problem. And i am sure that 98SE would too if configured.
What kind of motherboard so you have?
