I just upgraded to a 300GB Velociraptor from an 80GB old POS. I did a system restore since I couldnt just reinstall windows 7 being that I bought the upgrade and not the full version. Now It seems windows thinks that I am still using the old drive. In my device manager it says I have a WDC WD3000HLFS-01G6U0 ATA Device. Anyway I can get windows to see the rest of my drive? Also, does this mean that it might not be spinnin at 10krpm but only 7.2krpm still?
Alright, I found where it was. Used the disk manager in Windows 7. On my old hard drive I had a windows index score of 5.1 and with this new one in it only moved upto a 5.2. Is it not running right? My old hard drive was an 80gb running at 7200rpm and now I am running a WD VelociRaptor WD1500HLFS. It seems to me that it isnt running right. I bought it as a bare drive. I tried to run the Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for Windows and it doesnt freeze but it wont let my select a drive to test. Any help would be nice. Thanks again.
