    Hi there ChunkyCairns,

    You can try to allocate that space and extend it afterwards. :)

    If this doesn't work, I believe you can use some third party partition management tool.
    Once you've partitioned and formatted the drive, you can check it's health status out: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/282651-32-best-diagnostic-testing-utility

    Hope this will help,
