Hi all,




I've upgraded my SSD to a 2TB Samsung 970 Evo Plus.


However when i check the drive info in Disk Management or Device Manager it shows up as a 1TB drive?


But when i view it in Samsung Magician or CrystalDisk (and in the BIOS) it shows as the correct 2TB drive.


Does anyone know why windows reports it like that? Is this anything to be concerned about?


It shows as having the correct 2TB of available space in Windows Explorer.




Thanks in advance

My guess would be a typo in the driver, where they cut and paste the description from one hardware ID to another and didn't change the size.

Strange mine shows OK :)


Delete it in device manager and restart can sometimes fix it.

Thanks will give that a try. When you say delete, do you mean ‘uninstall device’?
Also its my OS drive, would this affect anything?

Yes uninstall, select and hit delete and uninstall, it will reboot and re-add on startup. I just did it as well so there is no issue. I.e won't affect OS, mine is the same OS drive as well.
