I have set up an external 4TB Seagate HDD in windows xp 64 bit. Under computer management I have located it. I tried to make it all one drive but when I set it up to partition it set it up as a 2048 GB and a 1678 GB. I qucik formatted the 2048 in NTFS but it won't format the 1678 when I right click on the unallocated space. I want to make it all ONE 4TB ( obviuosly it will be less) using NTFS how can this be done. If not how do I format the the 1678 so it can be seen and drive letter assigned?
Hi emerald, thanks! I have the entire HDD in NTFS. When I transfer data the data now appearing in the 4TB NTFS when I right click properties indicates READ ONLY. When I deselect the READ ONLY, then exit and re-enter the 4TB HDD it STILL indicates READ ONLY. I want to have the data so it can be edited. What is wrong?
