It does appear when you first receive this PC that it only has a 1 TB drive... however, a quick check in the Disk Management section of the Device Manager shows the other 1 TB of the hard-drive, just waiting to be partitioned. Takes about 30 seconds to do and voilà... the mystery of the missing TB is solved and you have the 2 TB PC you ordered.

Awesome machine!

I read the 2 reviews already in and ordered the machine.
Found only 1TB hard drive as per previous review
Thanks to the first review eventually managed to find and to format the 1TB of unused portion of the hard drive.
Being unfamiliar with Windows 8 it took some finding. I believe it is in Computer Management then disk.
To date impressed with it.

apart from the spaghetti,this is a truly quiet,quick desktop machine which I have coupled with the beautiful acer t272 27inch touchscreen.extraordinarily it came with a black, wired keyboard and mouse both immediately redundant.i purchased the white wifi perixx set.i have also added a usb 3 hub,a pair of speakers and read two easy steps windows 8 books before switching on but I am reviewing to continue the saga of the missing hard drive. on the start screen,start typing computer getting as far as com,see computer top left and open to a standard Microsoft screen called computer.open manage to see computer management.open storage to see disk management.double click and maximise screen. you will see the five allocated partitions and a sixth with 931 gb unallocated giving a total of 1863 gb hard drive. how this is brought into use and best partitioned and particularly repartitioned,i leave to the next reviewer. happy days.

My girlfriend owns this PC and I just want to add that you can merge the missing unallocated space to your C (or even D) partition by following the instructions under: 'Add non-contiguous unallocated space to C drive in Windows 8' at [...]

I presume this issue arose because Acer sell 1TB variants of this machine (indeed, mine is such), and they more or less copied the installation type of that. Annoying, but easily remedied.

A fabulous machine in most other respects.

The machine is fast to load etc BUT have had a few issue regarding the software and reliability of the machine. On doing a number of checks with AVG PC Tool it came back with some software issue and also a DVD drive update and then the dreaded 2tb hard drive that arrives with only 1tb visible and you then have to do the work that Acer should have done to get the extra 1tb. It took them nearly a week to get back to me with the query. Contacted Amazon and they gave me a link to sort out the issue but that was to a Windows 7 web site - the machine came with Windows 8. There is also the major issue of not being able to do a full backup and the emergency backup onto a 32gb USB drive - turns out there are some issue with the machine and I have to return it to Acer to sort that one out - not very good reliability or customer service from Acer - will not recommend or buy another one from them - one not happy customer because have loaded all my various items of software and do not want to remove everything to send back to Acer - they even want all my passwords etc When I queried this they just ceased reply to my query - so DO NOT BUY
