Problem: Windows 10 Disk Management does not correctly detect drives over 2TB connected via USB 3.0 to SATA adapter. Instead of the correct size, it shows 16380GB (aka 16TB) no matter what drive I connect. No drive letter can be assigned and all partition options are gray.
I am using the following setup:
Windows 10 x64 Home on an Acer Predator notebook
LogiLink Adapter USB 3.0 to SATA (AU0013)
Larger than 2TB drives, formatted previously GPT on Windows 7
All drivers up to date, all drivers re-scanned for force-update
I have 2 adapters that I tested and they behave the same (simultaneously too).
I have tested with 3TB Seagate older HDD and 8TB WD Pro HDD. Same size is incorrectly shown: 16384GB.
I have tested smaller than 2TB drives and they are detected correctly.
I have checked diskpart and it shows the correct size for each drive.
Disk Management lists the partitions as "GPT protective partition"
I assume the problem is with the bridge translation, but how do I fix it ?
