SATA 4TB only showing 2TB

Last Modified: 2016-11-23
Hi I have previously dealt with issue on a different post where i had been advised that Dell PowerEdge T710 which i have has Dell Perc 6i raid controller which doesnt support 4TB hard drive therfore the solution is that either i buy H700 or H800 or different hard drive.

I have now purchased Dell PERC H700 512MB SAS RAID Controller XXFVX for RAID levels 0/1/5/6/10/50/60

the issue is same it shows 2TB instead of full 4TB. i have 8 hot swap slots and in each it has brand new western digital SATA 3.5 6GB/s

any help will highly be appreciated
