Not your usual win 7 2tb+ thread...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I had 1 2tb, 3 3tb, and 1 4tb external HDDs.

All were in USB 3.0 enclosures and were formatted NTFS from the factory.

All work fine when using the USB external. When I moved the drives to internal SATA, only the 2tb came up properly. The others show as unformated.

These drives are all ~90% full.
I would rather not play the HDD shuffle by putting them back into external, buying another drive, transferring, formatting, transferring.

Are there any options, or am I SOL?

It can be done without data loss (cross fingers and pray)...
You would need to convert the disks from MBR to GPT...
There is a tool called AOMEI Partition Assistant and it's free and can do the task for you without data loss (cross fingers and pray)..
Honestly I wouldn't take the chance without a backup of the data but that's up to you...
There are guides online.. just search "convert disk from mbr to gpt no data loss" and you find some... good luck
