    Can you see EVERYTHING on that drive, as in hidden AND system files?

    Yes I can?

    It is a brand new seagate hard drive and has no windows on
    it, it is set up as a slave. As I have 2 x maxtor 80 gig drives as
    master and slave?


    thanks

    are you sure that Windows picked up the complete 160GB drive. could it be that block about hard disk size. i don't remember exactly but after some particular size your older BIOS might not detect full size of your HD.
    also try sequoiaview http://www.win.tue.nl/sequoiaview/ and know what all files are taking up your space.

    Don't certian pieces of hardware have to take up some space or even the file system? I know there is somthing that takes up a lil space. Just not exact on what.

    No hardware does not but I think ya mean where a true 1GB = 1024MB but HDD manufacturers' 1GB is only 1000MB and the number of partitions ya will also effect size as the partitions themselves take up space.
