For the longest time I have been using this hard drive as extra space for my DVR recordings, but I have since found better uses for it, and I want to re-format the drive to use on my computer.
The problem is that I can't find it in 'My Computer', it just won't show up. I have read about going into the Disk Management, but I don't really know what to do here.. I'm slightly scared to touch anything that shouldn't be touched. I can't exactly identify the 2TB drive either, it seems to be split into 3 or 4 different drives?
Which drive I should be looking at, and what I should format it to? I have never formatted anything but flash drives, but this is a much larger drive. I emptied it of recordings before ejecting from the DVR, so I should have nearly 2TB worth of unused space (assuming the DVR had left some vitals on it).
I have attached a photo of my Disk Management window, can someone tell me what I should do here? Device manager says the name of the drive is 'WD Ext HDD 1021 USB Device'.
