[QUOTE=AcrylicAce;2226484]Again, I don’t really know much about this stuff but could you please explain something to me…
when I right click on the external hard drive and go to “format” it says that the file system is NTFS… not fat32. It also says that the “capacity” is 931 GB… this isn’t right is it?
Can anyone help me?[/QUOTE]
That sounds about right…cause of the way manufacture hide the real size of the drive is bytes or bits I don’t recall but one of those show the real format after you formatted the HDD and rather then giving you 1TB you get ~931G as your properties show. That is normal after format you loose space. That 1TB is the unformatted capacity. I know I formatted my 250G drive with NTFS and ended having 232G instead. I think there is a thread where users have talked about the loose in HDD space after formatting. Are you sure your going from the your internal HDD to the external HDD when moving the file?? Try copying a smaller file to the ext HDD see what it does? Also make sure your ext HDD is properly connect to the ports in case it is a loose connections.
