I have a 3TB external drive that I wanted to use for server backup on  Server 2008.  What I didn't know was that 2TB was the limit.  Server Backup formatted the drive then errored with the 2TB limit.  

How do I get this drive reformatted so that I can partition it and put it back into use?

You should be able to format from Disk Management.
