Disk Storage Space does not match Server Storage RRS feed

  • Question

  • Based on the "Server Storage" tab of the Windows Home Server Console I have:
    1 PATA drive with 74.53 GB
    4x SATA drives with 232.89 GB each
     in the summary it says I have total of 1006.57 GB of space. So far so good, this confirms what I have in my box.

    However, if I go to "My Computer" my Hard Disk Drive total sizes are:
    SYS: 20.0 GB
    DATA: 54.5 GB

    Where did the other 931.56 GB go???? Does Windows only see the 1 PATA drive?

  • Known and reported...several times. The WHS console reports total freespace correctly.
    The forums have a search feature. Wink

  • Thanks for tip, I did some searching.  Since I have 5 drives: 1 small 80GB and 4 large 250GB drives I can not install WHS on the small 80GB as I am used to doing. I disconnected the 80GB drive and reinstalled WHS and now everything is working fine.
