Maximum partition size
Posted on 2010-08-18
I have four 2TB hard drives connected to an Adaptec RAID Controller in a RAID-5 array.
In Windows Disk Manager this drive shows up as a partition (Drive E) of size 2048 GB and an unallocated portion of size 3532 GB.
Paragon Partition Manager shows by stand-alone hard disk with its two partitions as well as size and format information. The RAID disk shows up without any of this information and will not allow me to create a partion at all. The "Express Resize" manager does not even see the RAID disks.
I want a single logical disk of 5.44 TB (after RAID allocation and housekeeping on the four drives).
How can I do this?
Is Windows stopping me?
