I use the native backup system on my SBS 2011 Std server. I currently backup to a 2TB drive. I would like to use a higher capacity drive so that I can keep more backup sets than what I can currently store on the 2TB drive. I have a 6TB drive available (not currently being used for anything). Can the backup system properly use this size drive or does the windows 2TB limit come into play (i.e. will it fill the entire 6TB)?
