Hello there Bill,
You are obviously in the know with this particular drive - My Passport Essential.
The problem I have is that I purchased the drive as a 640gig External Hard Drive with the intention of not sharing it with anyone.
Unfortunately, I having to share what I would consider a reasonable part of my hard drive with th esuppliers for thier benifit of running thier software on what is now MY hard drive.
MY brand new 640 gig My Passport Essential Hard Drive is in fact showing 595 gig in explorer. This is not what is advertised on the packaging, the propmotion from which I purchased it not the information on my reciept. The drive was purchased through Amazon.com and delivered to an address in London (England) prior being forwarded to myself in Melbourne (Australia)
What I want to do now is to recover ALL available space from MY new hard disk for my use and my use alone.
With you knowledge and your contacts, would you please tell me how to remove ALL the pre-installed software and remove the VCD. This is not what I wanted to purchase. Maybe another time but for now I would like my HD to reflect the 640 gig for me to use.
Thanks kindly Bill.
