Having problems with your PC Desktops ?
Disk manager only sees 25% of it
\015 I've been using a LaCie 4big quadra with 4x1TB LaCie hard disk drawers, in raid 10. Having filled the whole lot, I'm trying to replace the 4big quadra with 4x1,5TB LaCie hard disk drawers. The cube is connected via e-sata, but the disk manager sees it as a 748GB, instead of a 3TB, as it should be under raid 10. I'm not a formatting expert, maybe I did something wrong in the formatting/partition process. \015\012Can someone help me? Guido\015
Your partition size is incorrect not disk manager

The disk still spins (I can feel it when I hold it in my hand), but the laptop (Windows XP) won't acknowledge it anymore. It's only a cuople months old, so I can get a new one, but even though THEIR device went bad, they want to charge me $1700 to restore data!!! Unbelievable!
