Hello, I bought a Seagate 3TB 2.0 external hard drive. Initially it would not work on my PC but with some help from the Seagate website I got my PC to recognise it but the HDD has been split into two partitions - a 2 TB one and a 800 gig one.
The 2TB works fine but I can't access the 800 gig - I go into Disk Management & if you right click on that volume, it gives you no options.
I was told it could be because of my motherboard not reecognising anything over 2TB & to get a BIOS upgrade but it seems one does not exist. The motherboard is Gigabyte P55-UD3.
Does anyone know how to get access to that other 800 gig because otherwise I am stuck with a 2 TB HDD but paid for 3 TB?
I am also using Windows 7 if that is needed.

Hi Keisha25, you can try with software called Paragon GPT Disk Manager™
Thanks for the help - will try that when I get home tonight from work.
