    How to combine two ext. HD partitions into one big one?


    I have an ext. USB HD, 2 TB in size, partitioned into two separate drives, each of half the total capacity. Each separate drive appears in Windows Explorer as two separate drives. L1 and L2. I now want to return to having only one drive, of 2 TB, without any partitions. I have reformatted each partition. But the partitions persist.

    How can I revert to only one partition please?

    Thanks.

    :)

  3. Windows 10 & Seagate Ext HD Back-up +

    Installed Windows 10 and my Seagate Ext HD, Back-up + will go to 5% and freeze up. Consequently, nothing is backed up. I spoke with Seagate and they do not have any answer. Any suggestions?

    How to combine two ext. HD partitions into one big one?

    EXT HD is gone

    Not sure if i can see in the BIOS. I did looked but i couldnt see anything that should have been the HD. And no, it doesnt have a drive letter. If that was the case i just had to give it a new one wich should have solved the problem.

    EDIT: Looked again, can't see it. And i managed to fix my old EXT HD but that one isn't showing up in the BIOS as well.. But that one is working fine. Still need to figure out why Windows won't see it..
