I've recently setup a 32-bit Arch Linux installation for home server usage. When attempting to connect and mount my 3 terabyte external USB harddrive, I am notified that volumes above 2TiB are not supported on [the 32-bit] architecture. Is there any way around this, such as partitioning the drive to smaller sizes or do I absolutely need a 64-bit system?
*Note - The sever's processor is 32-bit, so I don't have the option of reinstalling a 64bit distro
Additional Info per replies thus far: The drive is formatted as an NTFS volume. The server previously ran a 32-bit installation of Windows 7, what allowed that operating system to overcome the limits that the Linux kernel faces?
