Windows 7: Reinitalizing HHD

Reinitalizing HHD

I have an unused 1TB HHD that I tried to initialize the other day. The initialization was successful but I ended up with a 100 mb partition which I didn't want. I tried shrinking the volume but it got even worse. This drive will be used for storage only so I want the maximum space available. Can anyone help me straighten out the mess on Disk 3?

Thanks,
Don Bohr

Did you initialize as GPT instead of MBR?

No, it was initialized as a MBR.

Have you tried to create one large partition? Right now everything is unassigned. Try to create one large partition and see what happens.
