Hey guys,

So I moved a 3TB harddrive from a network video recorder into a server, but seem to be having issues reformatting and creating a partition on it.

If I use Win 10 Disk management, it shows a Disk as online with 2048gb unallocated and 746gb as unallocated, with no drive letter.

If I right click on the 2048 disk, it allows me to setup a new simple volume and drive letter. But the 746gb side i can't do anything with (right click only has "properties" as the option).

I tried using Active Partition Manager, and when I try to format the full 2.73tb, it gives me an odd error saying "Unable to create partition: Impossible to place partition having last sector larger than 0xFFFFFFFFF on device having MBR".

Not sure how to proceed? Just want to format the volume as a single 3TB drive!
