Optiplex 790: only 2TB of 3TB drive visible
Posted on 2013-01-26
I put a 3TB drive (a WD30EZRX) in my Dell 790. In Disk Management, all I can format is 2048GB. The rest of it is marked as "746.52GB Unallocated".
The 2048GB partition says "Healthy (Active, Primary Partition)". When I right mouse on the 746.52 GB partition, there are no options except Properties.
1. How can I set it up so that I can use all of the space on the HDD?
2. Is there any way to use all free space on the drive as one 2.8TB drive?
Thanks very much,
