I still have the retail HD, so is that why. I the F: only available to people with bigger harddrives? Also, why is there only 4 gigs in E:, XYZ:2.1 gigs, and c has like 1 gig i tihnk.

F Drive is only for people that replace the hard drive, so you'll have to install to E or trade your drive out for a bigger one to get an F drive.

As for your totals not adding up: I don't have an Xbox in front of me until tomorrow but the numbers I had did add up properly if memory serves. I think C E and X were the only letters that had anything in them.

I'm not sure how recent your Xbox is, but perhaps it has an 8GB drive? Those numbers would add up properly then depending on the interpretation of what 1GB really amounts to.

All drives are partioned to 8 gigs regradless if you have a retail 8 or 10 gig come with the unit. On the 10 gig drives, unlocking the extra 2 gigs will give you an F drive. You have to format it first though. Look around the site, there's tutorials out there.
