HI 

can someone please point me the right direction as to what I could do to get this back to its normal size to use as a 3Tb disk.

In Disk Management in Windows 10 it shows a capacity of 8383.43GB. 

I have tried to format it but it seems to stay at 33% formatted which is what it probably would be for 3Tb drive after formatting. 

 

Great full for any assistance.

 

Thanks
