Windows 7: Updated Gigabyte mobo with 3TB drivers etc but when

03 Jun 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit
Updated Gigabyte mobo with 3TB drivers etc but when

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.

Have you checked your BIOS for an update?

Have you set up the drives as GPT rather than MBR?
