the 3TB drive is connected to the eSATA portion SATA portion of the motherboard [H55n USB3] Acronis 11 Disc Director for Windows 7 64bit and even Windows 7 64 Bit >>>> Manage Drives still show as a 2.00TB drive instead of 2.7-2.8+ drive. What is the problem if the drivers has been updated. Using Windows 7 64 Bit with SP1. The PC can see the drive [not formatted yet] but as the complete size. As a result of that I had not updated nor formatted the drive in case if I do so it will be only 2TB only. Suggestions? hope the drive itself is not defective. Strange as I thought Gigabyte software update would allow me to see the 3tb as at least 2.7 or 2.8tb instead of 2TB under windows disc management or any partitioning softwares...?? I believe I did the process correctly but not sure how to get it running.
