  • Freeware
  • Works with All Windows versions

Over time, a computer running Windows will slowly lose some of its hard drive storage capacity due to glitches in Windows file management operations. In other cases, software programs may interfere or corrupt parts of your computer’s device configuration overlay (DCO), disable the LBA48 address system or create host-protected areas (HPAs) on your drive. When these programs crash or are removed, some of these areas are never recovered and are unusable by your system.

With HDD Capacity Restore, you can recover all of this missing storage area and return your usable hard drive capacity to what it was when it rolled off the factory floor. HDD Capacity Restore automatically detects connected drives, determines their size, serial numbers, security state, and original factory capacity. It then uses that information to automatically restore the drive to that factory state.

The user interface is intuitive and simple: displaying the hard drive’s model and serial number, current capacity, original factory capacity, and the difference between the two (the “lost” disk space). A simple push of the “Restore Capacity” button will recover that lost disk space automatically by restoring the original LBA48, HPA, and DCO configurations. On completion, you are instructed to simply restart your computer.

HDD Capacity Restore alters your systems HDD firmware by temporarily removing it from the device management system. As such, the use of HDD Capacity Restore is not recommended for novice or casual computer users. HDD Capacity Restore may not always be able to restore a drive to factory capacity if the motherboard is blocking HPA and DCO commands.

HDD Capacity Restore is a completely automatic process.
