Finally bought a large drive, a WD 30EZRX drive…
Only problem is that on my Windows 7 x64 system when the RAW
drive is installed in the system and GUID selected it only shows as a single drive of 746.39Gb.
I’ve “cleaned” the drive returning it to it’s RAW state via the command prompt twice and can get to see the full drive only when connected to the computer via a USB2.0 enclosure.
In an eSATA enclosure I’ve managed to only see a 2Gb partition
I was under the impression that 3tb drives were not an issue with x64 systems.
I don’t want to run this drive in a USB2.0 enclosure and don’t have a USB3.0 enclosure available to me right now.
I’d dearly love to see the full drive as an internal drive, but I’m thinking
that isn’t going to happen on this system.
