3Tb SATA III HDD work with W7 home premium 64 bit?

I'm looking to purchase a 3Tb hdd to backup my files, are there any known problems with W7 integration? I know you cant boot windows from a SATA III and I dont intend to, this is just a back up solution.

Hi rocks911 and Welcome to the Forum

It's kinda an extreme solution for backup, but if your motherboard can handle Sata III then yes it will work otherwise it will go back to Sata II or Sata I speeds.

Hi rocks911

your motherboard can only use sata I , II not sata III. so unless i'm missing something you can't use that drive.

If it is meant as a backup drive, then that likely means you'll be using it as an external, so yes, you'll be fine. Even if it is an internal drive (which isn't considered as backup), it will still work just fine.
