(NOTE: The operating system (in this case Windows XP SP3 32 bit) we are using is not a choice.)
I am trying to setup a short term storage device.
First, I found a large 5 Terabyte NAS drive that would IMO fulfill my storage requirements.
Second, I also found that Windows XP seems to have a hard drive size limit (see 'Is there a limit to the size of a hard drive for Windows XP pre-SP1?'):
- XP should handle up to 2 TB per volume after the service packs are applied.
- You are correct. There was a 137gb limit on the orginal pre service pack windows xp. This was addressed/fixed in SP1.
My question is, will my Windows XP SP3 32 bit machine see the 5 Terabyte NAS and be able to read/write properly to the NAS drive?
