To Clarify.

I used the disk management to partition my external USB WD hard drive.
Now I can only see the partitioned space appearing as Local Drive F (326gb) in 'My Computer'

But in the disk management, it appears as 1863.01 gb.

what did i do wrong?
How can I fix it?

Thanks!

Your info is a bit confusing! You deleted the F and H, created a new F with the entire space?

I think you have formatted your partitions, so if you want to recover your data you could use TestDisk to recover your data. So what is your steps to partition the hard drive?

BTW you could try AOMEI Partition Assistant's partition recovery wizard to have a try, you can download the freeware from PCworld: http://www.pcworld.com/article/257248/aomei_partition_a...
