: Not even NTFS but probably a drive overlay that was used to install the drive to allow the BIOS to see the full capacity.Go to the HDD makers web site and download their installation disk.
: Look on the site for info. about DDO...dynamic drive overlay.


Some helpful articles that explain the problems with removing a drive overlay are at:

and:

Doc #24003, Doc #24006, Doc #24019, Doc #24020 and others may be helpful.

Be VERY CAREFUL if you need to recover your data - you could lose it all if you do this wrong.

Good Luck,
