I'm wondering if there are known issues with large USB hard drives with Windows Server 2008 r1.  In the last 6 months I have had a 2TB and a 3TB (with 2TB partition since Windows wouldn't accept larger) USB drive fail with hard I/O errors.  The 3TB drive was on a new PC, so it can't be the USB controller on the motherboard, and I'm pretty sure I replaced the USB cable.

I'm replacing tomorrow with an INTERNAL 2TB drive.
