The other possibiilty is to install the operating system on the reduced portion of the drive, then use it to format the remainder of the drive. If you remove the reduction jumper it may be able to do that, but there is no guarantee that this will work.

Thanks for your response. I have already given him the news that this "Upgrade" is just not feasible. He explained to me that he needs this size drive in order to run the programs for his newly acquired CNC mills. I in return responded that it's not the drive alone he is need of for this type of equipment but an entire system upgrade since he will be running three Mills. I informed him that although his system still works if he wants to be more productive in the future, he needs a system to handle that requirement and that in relation to what he paid for the drive a couple hundred more invested would provide him that security.
Sometimes getting somebody to understand that is a bit difficult, but after about an hour and a couple of beers later I think he understands. LOL
Once again thanks for your input on this issue
