how are 2TB and up desktop hard drives formatted and partitioned?
Posted on 2015-01-18
Hello and Good Evening Everyone,
With the increase of very large internal hard drives like 2TB and greater, I am wondering how they are prepared with respect to formatting and partitioning. I am somewhat familiar with the FAT32 and NTFS format structure. However, I am not sure if NTFS would even support 2TB and larger internal hard disk drives. Perhaps there is a new file system which I am unfamiliar with that supports drives that large. At any rate, I am curious about the procedures or logistics of formatting and partitioning the more modern and larger hard drives.
Any shared input regarding this question will be appreciated.
