partitioning software for 3tb seagate HDD

Posted 22 April 2015 - 03:43 PM

My hard drive has 1 tarabite of unallocated space windows is only seeing 1.99 tb of it. I tried using the disk utility from seagate without any success only making it worse. It deleted the hard drive completly and when i tried installing it back it wouldnt show up on my computer after it said success. Im taking it this software is not made properly. Is there any other software that will allow me to properly allocate my 3tb hard drive into multiple partitions and if so how?

I'm not sure that I believe software provided from the manufacturer doesn't work.

Why not use tools provided by the OS? Fdisk, gparted, depending...

"It deleted entirely" you are aware of what partition tables are yes? Where you altering existing partitions? Generally that's a bad idea. One that leads to data loss.
