    That does look strange. I assume that it's a used disk you've added since there's already a 270GB partition on it? HOWEVER, It doesn't have a drive letter assigned to it.

    What exactly is it you want to do? Delete everything on it and create a single 2TB partition or what? Assign a drive letter to the existing partition so you can see what's on there?

    There's a free partition tool you can use to do all kinds of partition work that Windows Disk Management can't do. You can find it HERE.

    If all you want to do is to expand the existing partition, via WIndows DIsk Management, to use the available space on the disk? Then there's a guide on that HERE.

    Just remember that if you delete the existing partition ALL data on it will be lost.
