Why cant you create partition, normally you just right click in the space select new partition, choose size and drive letter & job done

Windows has a limit of about 2.1 TB per partition if it is an MBR partition.
To have 1 partition of over this amount, the partition must be GPT.

Also, some manufacturers, e.g. Seagate, have developed utilities to assist.

As a somewhat related question, can Partition Wizard create a GPT partition for the OP?
