Question concerning 4TB external drives.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have an acquaintance who is currently sitting full up on storage in his desktop, and has no more room to plug in sata drives.

He was looking at picking up this:

But he is concerned that the unit may not be able to handle his 4TB drives. I think it will utilize them just fine, assuming of course that he uses a GPT partition. What say ye?

Wrong info on canada computers, mediasonic says 4TB drives are supported
http://ain.mediasonic.ca/store/product_info.php?products_id=258

If it were me though, I would buy this for raid 50 for the security of raid 5 and performance of raid 0.
