Windows 7: 3TB WS My Book External need to redo shrink partition or resize

3TB WS My Book External need to redo shrink partition or resize

I have Ghost 11.5, and anything over 2TB is not recognized. I have a new 3TB WD My Book. I moved all of my previous backups from my 2TB external to the My Book 3TB drive, and successfully created an image of my 640GB main PC hard drive.

I tried to resize the My Book 3TB drive, and it said the resultant volume would be roughly 1.5TB. When I resized, it now has a 1397GB primary partition, and 2 unallocated partitions of 650.62GB, and 746.49GB. I wanted to create 2 1.5TB drives. How do I undo this shrink, or how do I proceed to combine the 2 new partitions into one? I took a screen shot of the drives in Drive Management. I would appreciate any advice on this problem.
Thanks!

Try using another program such as minitool partition wizard. It can undo changes to partitions and file systems.
