You could use a program called EaseUS Partition Master to extend your windows 7 partition to the unallocated space on that drive. It's free for desktop OSs. Just be careful as you could loose all your data on the drive. I would make sure you have a good backup before you proceed just in case there is a problem and you have to reload everything.

As far as I know windows 7 doesn't recognize drives over 2TB. Some companies offer unlocking services though, my asus motherboard came with said software although I've never tested it myself.

Use Asus disk unlocker from this page:

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8Z7...

It is under the download tab>select OS>utilities tab>scroll down to it.

I'm leaving it up to you to figure out how to use it but it's main purpose is for unlocking 3TB hard drives. Good luck.
