    3 Hard drives Showing Impossibly Large Secondary Partitions


    So in the past couples days a couple drives have started to look like the drives in the picture. Those drives have a normal partition that is the right size. Whats stranger is formatting the drivers doesn't fix them. I have moved them from internal Sata to Esata, to USB enclosures but they stay that way. I have tried to format them with Easus Partition software, windows software as well as minitool partition but none of them allow me to remove those partitions.

    I also scanned all drives with various malware, ransomware, and virus scanning tools to verify it wasn't something more worrisome but nothing showed up.

    What are the model and mfg of these drives along with actual drive size. This is a know bug with very large capacity drives.

    Thanks all. Solved. Well sort of. I took every drive out that had the issue and then formated them on another computer and put them back in. Will rewatch those drives and make a new thread if it comes up again.

    Are those drivers MBR or GPT?
    Are them bigger than 2.2 TB?
