    Hey,
    This problem has been bothering me for a long time now. Basically, I have a 1 tb hard drive but after I factory reset it a while back my local drive (c: ) is now showing 293 gb of max space. When i went to device manager it said there was no unallocated space. So could someone help me. Thanks again.

    Seems your HDD is in GPT format.

    That is not very helpful
    If you are trying to tell the poster that GPT might not display an accurate disk space then say so.
    Just stating he has a GPT disc doesn't help in any way or add anything to the discussion.

    The screenshot shows disc C as perfectly normal with 902gb size with 600+ free space

    What windows operating system are you using that only shows 293GB

    So what can I do so that my local (C: ) shows the 902 gb instead of 293gb? Should I delete all the partition? Thanks again.
