Got a new Seagate 2TB 2000NM0011 and was testing it in my docking station before installing it. Windows file explorer says it only has 500 GB capacity. I ran Speccy and it says it's a 2 TB drive. I don't know who to believe. If I put it in the case and then it won't hold the data I need it to hold, I'm stuck.

I don't understand why file explorer only sees 1/4 of the data capacity on the disk. Anyone have any ideas?
