If you go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Storage -> Disk Management, is it possible to get a screen shot of just that drive? You can blur out whatever else but I just want to see what it says about that drive.

it showed 756gb (not exact num but close, i am not home) of the 3tb its rated for.

usually it show 2.7tb, then i just format the drive. i format on an external dock.

addendum, i tryed on another ext dock and problem solved.

Oh, d'oh.

Yeah, some older docks have trouble seeing anything beyond 2TB.
