  1. I had discussed several problems with this 5 TiB Seagate hard drive in this post. https://msfn.org/board/topic/183934-seagate-external-hard-drive-is-xp-incompatible/ I have kept this 5 TB harddisk unused until now. I have proceeded to copy my 4 TB hard drive to this 5 TB hard drive by expanding the partitions. I have connected to the computer with the only Logilink USB adapter model that allows working with hard drives larger than 4 TiB. Oldest USB Logilink AU0028 (without letter "A") work with MBR hard drive with 5 TB, newer Logilink adapters are limited to 2 or 4 TB depending on the installed firmware. I HAVE SEVERAL PROBLEMS: 1-I have proceeded to create partitions with the Windows Disk Manager and it does not work correctly. It only allows me to create full disks with no partitions or partitions up to 63 MiB. When I move the box to expand size it gets stuck at 63 MiB. If I decrease the size it starts to show negative -100 MiB, -400 Mib, etc. 2-OK, I correctly partitioned the disk with MiniTool Partition Wizard 10.3 (higher versions don't work well with any disk). So I have 3 primary and 3 extended partitions. I proceed to copy the old disk partition by partition to the new disk with R-Drive Image. Partition 1 original 1.03 TiB on NTFS cluster 4 KiB I want to paste in new partition 1.32 TiB NTFS 8 KiB. This seems to work without problems. Partition 2 original 759 GiB on FAT32 cluster 8 KiB I want to paste in new partition 1.17 TiB on FAT32 cluster 16 KiB. The operation says to finish without problems, but when I go to My PC the file explorer says that instead of 1.17 TiB the partition measures 182 GiB. When entering the content the folders are visible but when trying to access the files these are faulty. When I go to Windows Disk Manager it says that the partition is correct and that it measures 1.17 TiB. When I examine the disk with any partitioning program it says everything is ok and the partition is 1.17 TiB, however My PC still says the partition is 182 GiB. what is the problem, why my computer doesn't show the partition correctly after copying with R-Drive Image? The old 4TB drive has the first partition in sector 63 and according to Minitools it is misaligned. I have aligned the new 5 TiB disk with MiniTool before starting the copy and it has put the first partition in sector 256. Is it correct for a partition to start at sector 256? I am checking the size of the clusters and I see that after proceeding with the copy the original cluster size has been respected, both in the NTFS partition and in the FAT32 partition. That is, R-Drive Image has not copied the partitions with the new assigned cluster size. I have tried to solve the problem with larger cluster sizes but when making the copy the original cluster size is assigned. 3-OK, I proceed to make more copies of FAT32 partitions with large sizes (600-800 GiB) without problems. The problem seems to be when I exceed 1 TiB in size in FAT32. How do I get My PC to correctly recognize the partition? Is it a size limit problem on 1TiB FAT32 or is the problem in the R-Drive Image software?
