Windows 7: Will Windows 7 32b recognize 3GB External USB Drive?

Will Windows 7 32b recognize 3GB External USB Drive?

My 1.5TB USB( using the EZ-dock adapter) drive is about full, and I'm looking at a 3GB drive to replace it. My system is a Netbook with USB 2.0 as the only external drive interface so that limits my options considerably if I want to keep it to something I can throw into my suitcase easily when travelling.

Could someone verify that Windows 7 32bit will recognize it?

As lond as you make it a gpt disk and not an mbr disk it won't have any problem. You are talking about a 3tb disk right..
