Updating nxe from hdd
This tool allowed me to reset the drive to its full capacity, sans DDO. I have a 160GB drive that was previously full of all my data, but is now appearing unformatted to windows XP SP2, and as 33GB to the BIOS.One side note: The tool requires that the drive you’re resetting be on its own IDE channel. Capacity limit jumpers aren’t set on the drive, and some recovery software has been able to find the 149GB [formatted capacity of the drive] partition, but not restore it (it can’t restore 149GB of data into 33GB of space) Will this tool restore the drive to full capacity without damaging the existing data on the drive? My previously useless hard drive [mysteriously reporting to windows as 33GB unformatted instead of 160GB 80% full of stuff] has been resuscitated in two clicks by this program.
There has to be a way to switch S-ATA ports into “Normal” or “Compatible” or “Legacy” mode (as opposed to “Native”). Dmitry pedro: Sorry, you will have to remove the hard drive from the laptop and attach it to a desktop PC.MHDD can also access DCO (Device Configuration Overlay), and that allows you to not only change hard drive’s capacity, but also switch some hard drive functions, such as LBA48 support, Security commands support and others.Some manufacturers (for example, Dell and HP) use DCO to reduce capacity for marketing needs.Hard drive manufacturers use decimal gigabytes while operating systems use binary gigabytes.One decimal gigabyte contains that’s more than a 7% difference!
