Hi I have just got a new 2TB Seagate Hard drive to replace my old one Imagine my surprise is when I loaded it it shows under 1Tb before I loaded I put it on USB Cable to see if I could format it but I could not but it did show 2TB So what I have I done wrong. One strange thing is on my old drive when I took it out on it it had 4 photos but when I put the 2TB drive in it showed the photos of my old drive on it how is this The only thing I can think of is I am using the same cables to connect it to the new drive

Unless you have transferred the photos then that’s not possible, are you sure you haven’t mixed the drives up ?

It sounds like you may have cloned the drive, in which case it's only showing as 1TB because that's the size of the old partition.
