3TB drive connected to GA H55n USB3 but cannot

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
the 3TB drive is connected to the eSATA portion SATA portion of the motherboard [H55n USB3] Acronis 11 Disc Director for Windows 7 64bit and even Windows 7 64 Bit >>>> Manage Drives still show as a 2.00TB drive instead of 2.7-2.8+ drive. What is the problem if the drivers has been updated. Using Windows 7 64 Bit with SP1. The PC can see the drive [not formatted yet] but as the complete size. As a result of that I had not updated nor formatted the drive in case if I do so it will be only 2TB only. Suggestions?

You could try and partition up the drive into smaller sizes and then try and see if Windows 7 detects over 2TB as that is one of the limitations at the moment but here is a workaround: http://carltonbale.com/how-to-break-...e-system-limit

I see even in Acronis 11 and the windows 7 64bit disc manager as 1 drive with size of 2tb. As a result I have not even initialize the drive yet in case if I have to do something else before hand. I hope the drive itself is not defective.
