Hi

So I connect a 1TB portable USB drive up to my HG659 and it is showing as being 60.2MB.
Because it's reporting the disc size and free space incorrectly I don't think File history in Windows 8.1 is working correctly.

The drive is formatted as NTFS if that makes a difference.
Any ideas on how to have it report the space correctly?

Reconnected the drive to a windows machine and in "Computer Manager" only the 1 partition is shown.

I've network mounted the drive, so not sure what's going on...

It appears that it might be formatted using GPT partition rather than MBR as it sounds like it is picking up the EFI boot partition which normally sits at the beginning of the disk.

Ahh that's highly likely given it was formatted on 8.1, good thinking!
