This worked, it shows the full drive
I made two partitions and it loaded right up into windows even with the older 126.96.36.1993 controller drivers I didn't realize I had.

Na no card with it, the $70 I saved helped pay for a new C300.
WD rocks too though, I've got some of their other drives

This also did the trick! I had an old 188.8.131.523
. Updated to the newest 10.1.0.1008 and viola
. I deleted the partitions and windows now sees the full 2.72TB. Awesome!
Got the drive doing a full format now should be ready for backup tomorrow
Thanks to all very much
