    Does anybody use 3Tb drives? Problems?

    I have 9.5Tb drive space in my computer, and it's full of movies (2 x 2Tb, 4 x 1.5Tb), and I want to get them transferred to some 3Tb drives.

    Is there software in the repos that recognizes these drives?


    edit:
    Looks like in Windows environments, up to 280G is not usable on these drives????????

    It depends on the partition table you use, the ms-dos table has a limit of 2TB. So you would just need to format the drive then use a gpt partition table, which you can do with gparted.
