        This problem maybe an old chestnut for which I apologise but much of the googled advice I found didn’t work for me as it was years old

        I’ve just recycled a 2TB drive from an obsolete PC to use as a backup option. It’s fitted in an Orico USB 3.o drive enclosure. File explorer sees it but records only 100 Mb capacity while Disk Management sees 3 partitions: 100Mb, 1.86Tb labelled New Volume, and a 450Mb recovery partition.

        What do I have to do to make Explorer see the whole disk?
