Windows 2003 maximum volume size issue
Posted on 2012-09-12
We purchased a Sonnet Fusion D400QR5 hard drive enclosure and configured it with 4 2TB drives for a total of 8TB. It’s configured for RAID 5 so we should have between 5 and 6TB of free space. When we connected it to a Windows 7 laptop, we have over 5.5TB of free space. When we hook it up to our 64 bit Windows 2003 SP2 server, we only see it as a 2TB drive in Disk Management. I converted it to a dynamic disk and a GPT disk and it’s still only 2TB. It is connected to our server using the ESATA connection. Why is it only showing only 2TB under Windows Server 2003 64bit? We converted it to a dynamic disk and GPT disk so shouldn't we be seeing the full 5.5TB? Thank you.
