I set up my external hard drive that had 1.5TB of space as a recovery drive, and afterwards it showed that I have 32GB of space. Is there any way I can get my space back?
Which OS are you using, and how exactly did you set it up as a recovery drive? Also, I take it you no longer want to use it for recovery purposes?
If you're using Windows 7 or older, go to
In Windows 8 since there's no Start button any more, just press +X to bring up the Power User Menu and select Disk Management:
If you're using Linux, fire up
Right click on the drive and click Format
For File System, choose NTFS
