Click on the expand window button at upper left of the little popup hidden behind your taskbar so we can see it. If that doesn't work try to drag it upward.

Move the data off your external to wipe it of all the crapware and its code using Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command, then repartition in Disk Mgmt as you please.
