    I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and it is rooted. My SD card, which has a 28 gig capacity, is only showing 7 gigs. I researched this, and it appears that there isa partition that needs to be removed. I connected to Windows 7, downloaded partition software, but the only thing that is recognized is the host computer. My phone does not show up. Any suggestions? I copied the contents of my SD card to my computer, but only the 7 gigs that are not partitioned were copied. So I don't want to format the SD card because the other 5 gigs I have on there were not copied. Please and thank you.

    Take the SD card out of the phone (when it's unmounted or the phone is off, of course). Connect the card to your computer, using the adapter that came with it, a USB adapter, whatever you have. You can't format the card with a program on the computer when the computer is in the phone. The computer needs lower level access to the card than the phone gives it.
