Unable to create new volume on Windows 2012 Server

I'm attempting to create a new volume on a 2012 server.

I have 838 total capacity with 244 GB un-allocated.  

I've tried creating a volume every size from 1gb to 244gb but keep getting the error "Failed to create partition - not enough available capacity"

If you I utilized the disk as MBR then you are likely hitting the four volume limit on a primary partition (there is a hidden reserved volume as well as the three you listed.) You'll need to create a new extended partition, and from there you can add new volumes to that partition.

What is the disk size, format, and partition layout. You may be hitting other limits (2TB, four volumes on a primary partition, or similar.) Based on the unallocated space, my first guess is you are hitting a 2TB limit on a 3TB drive.
