Windows Server showing incorrect disk size after configuring partition

Windows File system size is not showing correctly after configuring the Windows partition.


You will need CMD for this entire fix. Get yourself comfortable with using the command line.

To get started,

1) Head to CMD, Windows Search > CMD. Alternatively, you can access it through WIN + R then type in cmd.exe and press ok.

CHKDSK command to repair drive

1) On CMD, type in chkdsk /F and press enter

2) Key in Y and enter if you are prompted with a message requiring a drive repair or system reboot.

If this method does not fix your issue, try the next method.


1) Type in diskpart in cmd to go into diskpart

2) Use the command below list volume to list all available volume
list volume

3) Select the volume that the partition size is displaying incorrectly, use command select and in this case Volume 0, so the command, in this case, will be select Volume 0

4) Extend filesystem, use the command extend filesystem
extend filesystem

Your file explorer's size should show correctly now.
