Connect the external drive to the system & check if it shows up in Windows Disk Management window. Now open Command Prompt with admin rights. Next type the command: chkdsk X: /f (where x is the external drive letter/ whatever it shows) then press Enter key.
After completion, type exit & press Enter key. Now, you can check if you are able to see the full capacity of the external hard drive.
