I bought a hard drive with 3 TB capacity, but Windows 7 x64 only recognizes 2 terabytes of it. Is this a hardware problem?
If it is a system using an MBR, then it may only read 2TB partitions. If it uses GPT for the partitions, then it should read all 3 TB. I assume the case is that the hard drive was set up as an MBR disk. This is true in Linux, Macintosh and Windows
