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?
