  1. I've just installed a new Seagate 200gb hard drive but my system is only seeing 130gb of it.

    I am running xp sp2.
    In disk management it does actually show the other 70gb of the drive as "unallocated".

    How do i make the "unallocated" become allocated?
    How do i get to utilise the rest of the drive?

    Create a partition and then format it.
