Well, sir you have busted the 2TB storage limit. You must re-configure the disk for the whols 8TB to become available.

See here:https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/windows-server/backup-and-storage/support-for-hard-disks-exceeding-2-tb


By the way, I am assuming your OS even supports the above configuration! You can try to format the drive with ext3 format!

Let us know!
