Hi, is it possible for W2K to recognize all of my new 4TB drive (made by HGST)? W2k's disk manager as well as several third-party partioners only show the 4TB disk as having 1678.02GB unallocated, although I have a 2TB (Seagate) drive that shows up with 1863.01GB - the 2TB drive registers more space than the 4TB drive. In googling this problem, I've noticed that 1678.02GB seems to be what many people's larger drives display as - is there some significance to this number? This is not the boot drive. I'd prefer to have it all be one partition, but I could live with 2 2TB partitions, as long as I get to access the whole capacity of the drive. I'm running SP4 with a bunch of updates I downloaded from MS a few years ago. If it would help, I'm willing to reinstall W2K using unoffical SP5, although I'm not sure the best way to go about that. For reference, my technical knowledge is weak: for example, I'm pretty fuzzy on the difference between ATA and AHCI (I believe I set my mobo to operate in ATA mode). Please let me know if there's any other info about my configuration I should post. Also, I looked over the first 10 pages of threads here, and I didn't see this question mentioned; sorry if this is a repeat. Please let me know if there's another thread I should look at. Thanks! For the past few years I've enjoyed keeping my W2K setup alive despite M$'s wishes, but now I'm worried that this may be the rock that breaks me. Thanks to all the regular contributers here, who have done such amazing work to support W2K!
