I own a Dell 8200 Dimension Desk Top PC
PROCESSOR: PENTIUM 4 AT 1.9GHz, 2gb of RDRam PC800 (non-ECC)
OS WINDOWS XP HOME EDITION
It came with an 80gb 8mb cache hard drive. I think it was a Western Digital. When I needed more storage capacity I installed TWIN 500 GB WESTERN DIGITAL BLUE CAVIAR’S ATA-100,7200 RPM 32mb CASHE IDE HARD DRIVES After loading the OS I noticed that it would only recognize about 320gb of the 500gb. The second drive is strictly for back up. Western Digital said to install a patch that would format the drives so the OS would recognize the full 500gb. That patch failed to work so I used another app call EASEUS Disk Copy. I think it’s spelled right. This then made it possible to access the entire drive capacity but since I have been using them they are really slow. No viruses or other malware on drives. What could be causes this & if anyone knows, what is the fix???
Other techs tell me it should work fine. Also, the drives are not even close to being full
