    I have a sata 200gb drive that is listed in bios as 200gb. When I check the properties in my computer/local disk c:/ It is only showing 100gb. Any ideas why and how I can resolve the issue?
    Thanks

    Sounds like the drive may not be partitioned correctly. If this is XP, then click Start> Run, then type: compmgmt.msc, then click OK.
    In the console tree, click Disk Management. Your disks and volumes will appear. Check to see if your drive's volume has been just partially partitioned...you might see that missing 100Gb (or thereabouts) marked as "Unallocated Space". Post back.

    It is listed in computer management console as unallocated space. Can I use partition magic to resize partition to include this space?
    Using Windows xp home with sp 2.
