Hard Disk Status Bar for percentage used not showing RRS feed

  • Question

  • In one of my SATA hard drives the Status Bar showing the percentage of used disk is not showing.
    Below the box it says 465 GB free of 465 GB when in fact a right click Properties shows that 230 Mb
    have been used. This screencast is showing what I mean:


    As it shows, Drive ST418AS  is showing the status bar empty (blank) and below total capacity and
    none used. The right click shows the real space used.
    This was found after a new Windows 7 installation.
    Anyone knows how to correct this?

  • Hi,

    As far as I know, this seems not to be an issue for Windows 7. Due to the used size is too small of the total size, please copy more files to the drive and see how it works.

    Hope this helps.
