Hi Mr. Hill​

Thankyou for ​responding. Would appreciate if you could help me understand, as what exactly do I need to do, to have the entire 4 tb utilised.

  1. Depress Windows key +R. Run the diskpart command. Command Prompt window should open.
  2. In the Diskpart prompt run List Disk
  3. Attach image of the Command Prompt window to your post.
