Since a few years ago there is a hoax spread on the Internet saying that the hard disks limits in MBR is 2 TiB. With the excuse that Windows can not address more than 32 bits. The truth is that the limit imposed in 2003 by LBA 48 bits gives the following results, actually 32 bits but according to the cluster size used in formatting, for example: Cluster 512 (old physical size used on hard drives) 2 ^ 32x512 = 2 TiB limit Cluster 4096 (current physical size used on hard drives) 2 ^
