Last Modified: 2013-11-14

I have an Raid 5 with 5,5TB on an transtec nas with Windows 2003 Storage Server.

Everytime when I create a virtual drive larger than 2TB I get this error message:

"The wizard cannot create the virtual disk using the file XXX. The specified virtual disk size exceeds the currently supported size of 2048GB. Specify a smaller disk size. "

But it should be possible to create larger drives?! Does somebody has an hint for me? :)
