HDD conundrum

Storage and Media Forum - eCoustics.com - www.ecoustics.com
My 2nd (slave) drive used to be my master drive. Both drives are 80 GB.

Now I've noticed that the slave drive has a maximum storage space of only 60 Gb.

Is the missing 20 GB down to the remnants of the Win XP OS and other stuff? And if so, why doesn't formatting the disk correct things.

Grateful for any ideas.
