I ordered a 2TB WD "Passport" backup drive for a computer running WinXP.
I must have still been under anesthesia thinking,
1) XP would recognize such a large hard drive,
AND . . .
2) that this 2TB passport would NOT come GPT formatted which XP also does not recognize.
At this point upgrading the PC to Win7 or Win 10 is not an option.
I need to backup all current data on the XP's 500GB drive as well as an already full WD500GB "MY Book" external hard drive.
I'm thinking I have to remove the GPT type format (if XP is going to recognize it) and most likely that will mean 4 separate logical 500GB NTFS partitions or no?
Can I leave this passport intact at 2TB and reformat it to NTFS or at least separate logical 1TB partitioned NTFS drives?
Any input will be highly appreciated
