We want to run a CCTV PC, running 5X 1TB Hard-Drives on Windows XP SP3 X32. But after a few rumours and googling, apparantly WinXP only supports up to 2.2TB? Is this true? and if so is there a way around it at all?

As far as I know, yes, Windows XP only supports up to 2.-something TB partitions. The best solution if you're using larger drives is to just make as many sub-2TB partitions as you need.

Oh ok, so its a 2TB Partition limit! So 5X 1TB Drives isnt going to be a problem.

Big thanks guys!

It would be appreciated if you'd create a thread (work log) on the CCTV PC..

Translation: There are allot of people who are wanting to build up a CCTV PC these days that I'm sure would appreciate info.
