Where is 900gb of my tb storage?
« on: January 31, 2015, 03:01:12 am »
I have a new 2tb Buffalo external HD using windows 8.1. It shows 566 gb available when all the files/folders (including hidden files) total about 450gb. What happened to nearly 900 gb of my storage?
hd is model hd-lb2otu3

Are you able to look in Windows Disk Management and see what it thinks the drive is?
