I did not understand what you want.
- Was it working and you've lost the files?
- Is it a new drive and you want to initialize it?

If it's new and you want to have all 10 TB available, you must convert it to GPT.
As a data disk, a GPT disk can be used on a Legacy or UEFI BIOS.
A GPT disk can only be boot able with UEFI BIOS and Windows 64 bits.

Your disk must be converted to GPT and then formatted.
The instructions are here:convert-mbr-to-gpt
- Download and install Mini Tool Partition Wizard
- Open partition wizard and select the disk you want to convert.
- select Convert MBR to GPT and Apply.
- Right click on the partition and select format. Select NTFS
