* The 2TB limitation is caused by the Operating System. The driver for USB, Firewire and SATA in Windows XP 32 bit version does not support a volume greater than 2TB. In Windows Server 2003 64bit version, the SATA driver already supports more than 2TB per volume; once you convert it to GPT disk, the OS should recognize the whole capacity of the volume set. However, the driver for USB/Firewire in 64bit WIndows still does not support 2TB per volume. So, in order to fully utilize the volume which is greater than 2TB, you have to have 64bit Windows and connect your unit using the SATA interface.
