I have installed a 120GB hard-drive and it only shows a total of 24.614 MB for drive f:!
Anybody know what is wrong, I formated with EvoX 1.837x.

check your drive settings/jumpers - my IBM drive has a jumper setting that will limit the apparent size of the drive to 32 Gb. If that is on, getting 24Gb on F would make good sense...

Doh!
I have changed the jumper, my apps and games have gone. It shows 16gb of f:!
Will I have to reformat the drive/partition?

Thanks

i doubt the stuff is "gone"... put the jusmper back and it should come back.

you might need to put it somewhere (your PC) while you reformat trhe partitions, but i doubt it's been "wiped".

good luck.
