I had a Toshiba canvio 3TB hard drive connected to my imac permanently(not used as Time machine back up at the time although it did have backups from when it WAS used)) and noticed today that it wasn't showing up at all.To cut a long story short it turns out the "caddy" which it was in wasn't working so after much difficulty I managed to remove it from the case.I put it into an external hard drive reader and it shows up in my finder but NOW I only have 801GB of storage on this 3TB hard drive.

I plugged the hard drive reader into a windows pc and again it only shows 801GB.

Is there a way to get this back?The part of the hard drive that IS available works perfectly ok so I'm guessing the hard drive isn't corrupt.
