I'm looking for a way recognizing the entire 3 GB hard drive (disk 6 in the attached screenshot) in Server 2008 R2 or in Windows 7 64-bit.

Is there a different file system that I can use (such as exFAT) that will allow this to happen?

Or is there some other method that I can use so that I can recognize this entire full sized 3 GB hard drive as a single 3 GB partition without having to partition it?
