    Hi Guys! I'm having a strange problem on my Hard Drive. It is a Toshiba MK1032GSX Hard Drive. The Spec Sheets are indicating that it is a 100GB Drive. But when I look at it in the computer it only shows 40GB. Is there anything related to jumpers that should i Do to fix the capacity? Because i see that there's pin intended for Jumper. But there's no instructions on what does every pin combination do? Anyone have ideas about this?

    Don't mess with the jumpers if you don't know what they do (no description found)

    Where do you see the capacity? My computer, Drive management, BIOS?

    Did you do partitioning/cloning operations on it?

    May be hidden partition. You can follow jellybelly's instruction.

    It shows you 38 Gb because a jumper on the back side of HDD stand wrong. Look at the picture on your HDD and try to find where should jumper stay. Check this easeus.com/resource/images/install-ide-hard-drive-jumper.gif

    It's not IDE. And also there's no pins shorted as it came without any jumpers set.

    Try update the BIOS. If that don't fix it I don't know what to tell you more. Maybe contact Dell support?
