It's normally a hardware limitation or something to do with addresses iirc.

You can't have partitions bigger than 2tb, you'll have to do a 1 tb partition and a 2 tb partition.

I don't want to sound negative but 3TB HDDs are still considered pretty expensive hardware to most people so it's a purchase that most people would research. The only "help" I can offer you is to try doing some research yourself.
