I have just brought two 3TB drives.
I have found that my motherboard states that they are 800GB while in the RAID config of the Motherboard.
Motherboard = M4A88T-M (http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3/M4A88TM/#specifications)
However if I turn RAID off, run them as standard drives, boot into windows, Create a GPT partition of 3TB in Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, I can see the whole 3TB and create a mirrored partition.
Can someone tell me...
1) Does it matter that my motherboard cannot see/support the 3TB in bios/raid setup?
i.e. Will my data be safe, windows is controlling the drives not bios etc right?
2) If a drive fails can I just recover the data from ANY windows 7 64bit PC?
3) Do you think I need to upgrade my motherboard? (limited $$)
Any info, comments, or help much appreciated....
