More about :external hard drive half size formatting
hi, thanks for the replies, i`m really new to this and the reason why i was trying to format to fat32 is so that my ps3 will recognize my WD passport hard drive as it wont read NTFS. i was following instructions how to do it and thats when ive messed up. How do i extend the partion using disk mamager as i cant find the option to do that?? cheers
This happened to me. Go to your start menu and type in disk management, look for your drive in there, it's probably split into other partiotions/unallocated space.
Alternatively if that doesn't work you can plug in your windows cd, go to install, custom, and then use the formatting tools there, then restart and make sure you DONT go through with the installation.
thanks alot for the replies, ive finally done it, i went onto swiffknife and found the unallocated 500gb, i had to delete the partition and then then move the bar which shows how much i wanted formatting to to fat32 to the full 1tb, thanks for the help guys
