I have a new WD Red 6TB.
Windows 10 64bit.
Intended only for storage, not for booting. I want to create one single partition for the full capacity.
When I connect to HD via SATA cable to motherboard, the disk management utility sees the full capacity (5589.03 GB), however shows as partition only 2,048 GB. The rest stays as unallocated. I do not have the option to delete, create volume or format the unallocated part. All options are greyed out, I can only access “Properties” and “Help” (see below).
When I connect the same disk to external HD docking station (connected via USB) I can see the disk, format and use it without any problem.
When I move it back to the motherboard - again only up to 2,048 GB.
Any help would be appreciated
