Got new 1TB HDD Samsung HD103UJ infact *surprise surprise*
Copied loads of crap onto it, was happy and removed old HDD's
After restarting, only 32MB was available, Yes 32MB!!!
OK, after much contemplation & other techniques to try and get my data back (yes I deleted my old stuff, silly me) I finally found this website which had all the answers!
I used the tool called HDD Capacity Restore Tool which actually DID solve all my problems.
Although im certain the drive themselves are hugely at fault after reading many a review from here.
Tuck this little beauty away for that rainy day when you experience what I have and what the author Dmitri categorises as Magic Involved HDD issues.
Yeap, shoulda gone with that Western Digital drive instead. DOH!

Hey man thanks for the head's up. I found your post on Google and it lead me to the same solution with my 1TB Samsung drive.
