    Hi, I got a 4GB WD HDD and was initializing it (GPT) when the USB connection cut. It was showing the correct size before but now shows less then half. Is there a way to fix this? I've done the Googling and tried switching to MBR then back to GPT but no luck.

    Regards,
    Tar

    Right click the Start button and check out disk management. Doh I didn't know what GPT stood for not really sure you could just delete everything and start over if it's not your main drive.

    how old is your pc?

    you must mean tb right?

    also you should have used diskpart and deleted the partition.

    basically

    list disk

    select disk x whatever number

    clean.

    that's all folks.
