I wanted to add another hdd 1.5tb to my system because I need the extra storage for video. I formatted it but when I came back to it this morning it had split it into 3 sections. Something I never did. I deleted one of the partitions and it combined with another but the the other won't work to extend to. I try to format it but it says it is too small but it show 880gb. What am I doing wrong?

Try with Partition Wizard- the free home edition works with 64 bit windows.

Well thats weird, right now you want to delete all partitions made on this new HD.

Then just format it, it should keep as one partition I dont know why its doing that is that a Vista bug hmmmm.

You can resort to HD partition programs.. Like Partition Magic or something else google her in.. thx and gl let us know..
