Hi,

You could refer to the following link: https://support-en.wd.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/16656

That link doesn’t help the OP as the WD100EFAX - 68LHPN0 is a 10TB Terabyte Hard Drive.

sure, 10TB is 9613.37 GB

but, in the OP’s picture … it says 9.25GB

decimal points make a big difference.

Reformat it and select NTFS and also GPT (GUID Partition Table) when formatting.

MBR only allows for a maximum partition of 2TB (don’t know why you drive is showing 9.25GB, but you definitely don’t use MBR with a 10TB hard drive !)

What does CrystalDiskInfo report?

could be some discrepancy in the sector count on the disk

chkdsk is able to show down to the byte how much available storage is present

use powers of 1024 to get KB, MB and GB etc
