MiniStation reporting incorrect size
« on: March 13, 2009, 05:20:12 pm »
   

I have just purchased 3-Ministation Turbo USC portable Hard drives MODEL PF320u2.

 

All 3 report 298GB in size in WINXP PRO. They are shown as 320 GB units on the box and model number.

 

Suggestions?

 

Thanks

There is a small portion of the HDD writable space that is lost to the alotment of SWAP, firmware and Metadata. 298Gb on a 320Gb capacity device is what it should show in writable space.
