I have a GoFlex Desk External Drive. USB 2.0/3.0 3 TB. Product number 9ZQAY9-571
Windows 7 Backups software failed with errors.
The errors indicated that it cannot handle these new drives. I found steps to delete the volume and recreate it. I deleted the 3TB volume but then Win7 default to the 2TB volume and will not let me recreate it as a 3TB volume.
I used the Seagate Dashboard, it found the drive but it has no options to reclaim the entire 3TB.
I started up WD Quick Drive Format but it reports the error “Please connect a WD external drive to continue.”
i rebooted but that does not help.
Anyway, I simply want to reclaim the entire 3TB drive. How do I do that?
