Hi all,

I've recently purchased a new SeaGate 2TB hard drive to replace my previous smaller one. It appears that I've formatted it wrong as the new 2TB drive is showing on My Computer as having the same storage space as the old drive. However, in Disk Management I can see the 'missing' 1.8TB or so but can't seem to access it. I'm assuming that it's a partitioning problem but, being a bit of a newbie I'm a bit lost on what to do now. I attempted to format it but it looks like I did it wrong. I've added some pics which show my system and the issue I'm having... some step by step instructions to solve the issue would really be appreciated! Ultimately I would like to remove the older, smaller hard drive and keep it safe as a back up and only have the new, larger drive plug in.

Your help is really appreciated!
