Hello, I just purchased an HP P600 SSD external harddrive with 500GB storage. However, it came oddly partitioned as two 232GB drives and a DVD rom with security setup info. I would like to condense the two drives to one, and tried to delete one volume in disc management to extend the other. However, the option was grayed out and I could not create one larger drive. I then tried deleting both and creating one large simple volume, however, it restricted my max size to 232GB. I am now thinking of making a spanned volume but this is uncharted territory for me and I dont know if there are any downsides or dangers to that idea. Can anyone help explain this all to me? Any help would be appreciated.
