    Is it partitioned or all one partition? If all one, partition into two 1.5TB or a 2TB and a 1TB, see if that works.

    To open Disk Management, press Windows key+r, type diskmgmt.msc and press Enter or click GO. Make it full screen. Expand the fields as necessary so everything can be seen.

    It would be tough to do for sure. You'd have to do it in stages.

    I was just guessing as 3TB is a large drive and there have been cases of programs having trouble with free space over 2TB but you are nowhere near that.
