I am using an internal hard drive USB adapter to mount backup drives. The adapter was working well with my previous 1GB backup drives.
We just got two new 3TB hard drives. We connected it with the HDD USB adapter, and fdisk was detecting it as a 801.6GB drive.
So after googling, I installed "parted" and tried:
(parted) mklabel gpt ... (parted) mkpart primary 0 -0
The same size issue remains:
(parted) print Model: Generic External (scsi) Disk /dev/sdd: 0.80TB Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B Partition Table: gpt Number Start End Size File system Name Flags 1 0.00TB 0.80TB 0.80TB primary
I have the same problem and same bad size with the two hard drives.
And it looks like GPT is supported by my kernel. Am I missing something?
