[Answered] External 1TB HDD showing as less?
I've read a couple of complaints of users having their external 1TB HDD showing up as less than 600 or 500GB.
Before taking the plunge I would like to know if I'm going to lose almost half of my capacity when I format a TB HDD to FAT32.
Anyone has insight on this topic?
You can safely purchase that 1TB. I have a 1.5TB working just fine now for 8 months. I think their problem was when they formatted the hdd. My first attempt to format the 1.5TB resulted in the same problem. That was resolved using a good format utility - Can't remember though if it was Swissknife or Partition Logic. But there is nothing to be worried about!
