My computer said to format the drive so I did. Started a new backup and only had 111 gb.
I would like it back to original settings and 1 tb. Please help.

I would go to disk management and see what the drive looks like there... most likely you should delete the partition and repartition and format to get the whole drive space back. (this will erase all data)

control panel / admin tools / computer management / disk management

If windows asks you to format a drive, that is typically the result of a physically damaged disk. Most manufacturers provide tools to check that.
