New Internal HD is Wrong Size
Hello,

I have added a new internal HD to my Vista x64 system and "My Computer" is
showing it as being 20GB when it should be 500GB. I have done a format and
it seems to be fine. I am also running Intel's Matrix Storage for a RAID
array but this drive is not part of that cluster but the Intel tool correctly
reports the size. How can I fix "My computer" to show the correct size.

Thanks,
Tim

My Computer only shows valid partitions. What did you use to partition
the new disk drive?

Andy, thanks for the reply, that was indeed the problem. For lack of a
better solution I used my XP install disk and deleted all the current
partitions and created a new one, the problem is not fixed.
