View Full Version : 3 TB harddisks for 820?

08-01-2012, 08:16 AM

I bought for the removable drive bay from our 3Play 820 four harddisks with 3 TB each.
In Windows I could format them only as 2 TB, the rest is like an unused part of the disk. Do you know if 3Play BIOS is supporting 3 TB at all?

Best regards,

It should work if the disk is formated as GPT (GUID Partition Table) not as MBR.
(how to change already formated disk, here is help: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/cc738416(v=ws.10).aspx )
Just can' t try now if it works, as we are already using the 2 TB in a live event...

Just was going to answer about the GPT partitions and now read that you are going to try them.
