I just bought 3.0 TB Western Digital Internal Hard Disk.
I put it in the PC & it was detected as 2.0 TB HDD in Disk Management.
It also asked me to initialize the disk either as MBR or GPT Partition.
I am using Dell T-7500 Workstation with Windows 7 (64 bit)
Can you please help me with following questions:
- What should I do to get full 3.0 TB Space then rather 2.0 it shows now
- SHould I initialize it first if I want to install Win-7 on it OR just Pop the Win-7 DVD & start installing it & it will guide me thru the rest of the procedure & help me select MBR or GPT then?
- What should I do if I just want to have Large 3.0 TB single partition? Should I initialize it & which one, MBR or GPT ?
- What should I do in case I initialize it either as GPT or MBR & don't get full 3.0 TB of space?
