How can I read or use the unallocated Partition?

My external hard drive has two partitions. We're "Healthy (primary partition)", the other is "unallocated".

I can see health as a disc but not the unallocated partition. How can I read or use the unallocated Partition?

When I right click on the partition menu popup are faded/not usable.


You can create a partition in the unallocated in disk management space.

Right-click on the unallocated space and create a partition.

If you have a partition on the disk using all the space you need to set as GPT instead of MBR.  Windows will not accept a partition of about 2 GB max on a game of MBR disk.
