My 5tb Seagate hard drive has two partitions and one is unallocated and I have no Idea on how to fix it.
How can I fix it without downloading anything?

This is probably because when you initialized the disk you used MBR. MBR can only handle 2TB. What you need to do is to convert it to GPT. This will delete anything that is on the drive so make sure you save anything you don't want to lose.

First right click on that K: volume and Delete Volume... Now right click on the Disk 1 box to the left and Convert to GPT Disk. You should be free to partition the disk however you want now.

I tried to fix it and I kind of did, but it became its own disk and some of its still not allocated.
I have no idea on how to combine them back together.

Quit while you're ahead before you break something important, retard.
If you can't understand basic instructions like "Wipe the disk, and format the entire thing as GPT" you shouldn't be fucking around with it.
>>
>>16519165
How did you even do that?

I used Seagates Diskwizard's Extended Capacity Manager.
>>16519173
I was able to put them back together, thanks.

I'm not this guy >>16519173 calling you a retard, I'm this guy >>16519135.

Covert that shit to GPT. What you have there looks really fucky, and I wouldn't trust it. It looks like your K: drive is still 2TB anyway.
>>
>>16519253
That options not available but on my computer it does say it has the 4.5tb.
What should I do?
>>
>>16519287
You have to delete K: first, and try to get it back to being one disk again.
>>
>>16519300
Deleted :K but they're still two different disks after I converted it to GPT.
>>
>>16519316
Try starting up a command prompt and then type in "diskpart" and then "list disk" and take a picture of the output.
>>
>>16519351
I'm pretty sure Disk 1 and 3 are my K: drive.
>>
>>16519363
It has something to do with a driver that Seagate installed to get 2 disks out of 1 physical disk. I don't know how to reverse it, but it's probably fine and I'm just being an idiot.

Go back to this screen >>16519316 and make a New Spanned Volume...
>>
>>16519426
Aaaand back to how it was before.
>>
I this attached via USB or plugged in to a SATA port?
>>
>>16519477
SATA port.

Have you checked whether or not your motherboard supports drives larger than 2TB?

I had this issue when I had my drive plugged in to a older USB cradle.

It should be 1 disk not 2.

You could try to boot off of the GPARTED ISO and create the partition that way.

Here are my disks.

My 5TB shows as one disk.
