Do you mean Windows only sees a partition that size? In this case, Disk Management will show the remainder of the drive as Unallocated Space. This will occur if the drives have been initially set up using pre-SP1 XP, or any other means of drive partitioning that does not implement 48-bit LBA.
If this is the situation, subsequent updating to, say, SP2, or viewing the drive with Vista, still only sees the limited "drive" (partition) size. The remainder of the drive needs to be partitioned to mount another drive, or expanded out to fill unallocated space, using Vista's own capability, or third-party software under XP.
If this is not the case, Drive Management will show no unallocated space.
