Default Faulty measurement

A 2TB HDD is located in a 3.0 USB Pluggable hub to the desktop.

Computer management in Windows 10 shows it is a 2TB.

However, when mouse right clicks in THIS IS PC, it shows HDD as 1TB.

Why is this

Can you provide a screenshot. Windows or most OS's will show a 2TB HDD as 1.869TB like for example my 1TB Toshiba HDD will appear as a 931.51GB in disk management as shown below.

Thank you BK 123. The issue has been solved (although I do not know how it came about).

This morning when I checked again, the display did show the correct amount for 2TB.
