    I had an old 200 GB drive that when I installed it in a new system showed only 32GB. I used HDD Capacity Restore Tool and was able to access the entire drive - ymmv. I can not post the link (post count too low) - google HDD Capacity Restore Tool

    The 32GB issue is usually a jumper on older ATA drives, that has been set to allow 32Gig only
