Hi all,

What is the upper limit of disc storage in Windows Server 2003?

I recently tested 2TB HD for WindowsXP and found that 2TB is the upper limit per volume. When I raided them together (JBOD), the BIOS recognized the new volume, but not XP.

I will be forced to change to server2003 if the ceiling is much more.

Thanks

Heeter

Up to 62 TB for RAID-5 volumes. (2 TB per disk with a maximum of 32 disks per volume and 2 TB used for parity.)

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
