I have a WD 320GB drive that currently thinks it's 290GB (1 partition) I want to create ONE partition that gives me maximum space. Originally the drive was formatted by Vista as a main partition (298GB) + a recovery partition (+8GB). Tried Disk Manager, but unable to get over 302GB. Unable to find a direct answer on internet.
Thank you & Merry Christmas!!

The drive is going to be far less then rated example my 1 terabyte drive is only giving me 931 giggabytes of space this is called fat from windows even if the drive is rated 320 gig its going to be less you have to use disk management and remove all partions make it unallocated then format it.
