    I installed a 3TB drive but my system only sees 1.99TB
    what could I do to fix this, I think it should be about 2.75TB
    using Windows 7 U,
    Don't know the computer type, it's been rebuilt a few times
    it's the C drive i'm talking about

    Thank you all so much

    Did you do this? Initialise the disk as a GPT disk to see anything over 2TB. Then you
    can create partitions and format them how you wish.
