    I bought a Lacie 2TB Thunderbolt d2 drive.. I installed in bootcamp on Win 7 and when I ran the lacie set up assistant it formatted the drive to use with mac and windows.. Then it set up a share partition. I went ahead and re formatted it in Mac ( should of left it alone ) and NOW I cant get the set up assistant to run again and format like it came from the factory? I saved the folder that came on the drive and STILL CANNOT get this drive back to the way it came from Lacie! Does ANYONE know how to RESET this back like it came from Lacie? Thanks... Im trying to use the thunderbolt connection on both OSx and Bootcamp..

    You can simply use Apple Disk Utility to partition and format your drive into one or more partitions, and you can have both Mac and PC formatted partitions.

    When I first ran the drive... Lacie Setup assistant did the formatting for me and now after I formatted ... the thunderbolt will not work on the Windows side!
