3Tb Drive

Recommended Posts

So Amazon had a deal for 3tb drive...

 

I plugged it into windows 7 OS and sees the drive as it should.

 

I am replacing a 1 tb drive that has data with the new drive... My motherboard is foxconn and my system locks up in idle randomly due to their bios.. So I started copying files over and it locked up..

 

So I used ghost to copy disk to disk, and after that well windows sees only 2.0 tb drive and the rest 800gigs is greyed out. I cannot even extend the drive.

 

Any ideas? Thanks

Is this 32-bit or 64-bit OS

Is the drive your boot drive or a secondary drive?

 

The MBR has a hard limit of 2TB so you would need to format it using a GUID partition table to get around the 2TB limit - but you can't boot off a GUID partiion table drive.
