Server with multiple 2TB partitions
Posted on 2011-03-02
I'm got a Window Server 2008 server with 4TB of hard drive space in a RAID 5. I currently have 200GB configured for the C: drive, 2TB (NTFS) configured as a D: drive and 1.5TB of unallocated space. I would like to create a second partition of that 1.5TB, however when I right click on the unallocated space in Disk Management all the options are greyed out with the exception of properties and help.
I thought about creating one large GPT partition as I don't really need 2 separate partitions. I was just trying to work around the 2TB limit on NTFS as easily as possible. I have also read mixed reviews about using a GPT partition.
Any ideas? Thanks.
