Hi Sorry what is this "rtename" ?   What I found is I can put in 1,500 GB  and then change to TB and it auto fills to just under 1.5TB 1.471etc

My question is really can you not use the decimal point when you size a drive in vcentre ? - is this by design for some reason?  thanks

what if you work in Gigs.... e.g. 1200G
