Win7 Pro certainly will (I have a 4TB NAS on a network in my office, and Win7 Pro x64 machines access and write to it just fine), so I assume Server 2008 R2 (which is available only as 64-bit) will too.  

It also handles locally attached (SATA or USB) GPT disks larger than 2TB, as well.

If you are accessing the share via CIFs, which you most likely are, i.e "\\nasdevice\share", then yes the CIFS protocol will recognize whatever size the share is. If you are asking about iscsi then I don't know.
