External 3TB USB drives don't work
I thought I asked this and got a answer but it is not in my activity so going to ask it here.
I had an issue a while back where I got a customer to update their 650 gig external USB drives to 3+TB ones.
I guess anything over 2TB has a different storage technology that server 2008 or older does not know how to use right?
I am trying to remember what it is so I can ask the external hard drive vendor to make sure I get one that will work this time as we are at the point where I need them to get bigger ones soon.
So I don't want to have them waste their money again.
I have asked them to hook up the 3TB ones and see if I reformat them if that would make it so they would work?? Have not heard back that they still have them handy.
So if someone could let me know the difference in the drives once you get over 2tb that would be cool.
I joined western digitals forum a couple days ago and asked but no one has got back to me yet.
