Help Me

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok so I just upgraded to windows vista, and it says I only have 127 GB on my HD. The BIOS recognizes 500GB (thats what it really has), how can I get vista to see all of my HD?

Maybe a partition that windows isn't detecting.
Other than that try to find this HDD space limit thingy, in the control panel somewhere, I think in system.

Vista also tends to put space aside for restore points.
My computer put aside 14gb.
This shows how to view and change the current settings:
