    For any HD > 2TB. You must initialize as GPT partition style. Open Admin Command Prompt and type:
    1. diskpart
    2. select disk 1
    3. clean
    4. exit
    5. Open disk management again and initialze it as GPT. It should initialize with one single unallocated partition
    6. Create simple volume and format it as NTFS.

Can't Assign Unallocated Disk Space
Hello, I was recently experimenting with partitions and i had to assign 50 GB of disk space to a partition. Sadly, I noticed that after I deleted it I can't add it back to my main hard drive's space. Does anyone know how I can do this so I have all my disk space again?
