Drive is fine once partitioned. I wanted to use this in a Windows 2003 server without too much reconfiguration. There appears to be a way to adding the drive as 3TB, but because of the way my server is configured it looked like I would need to reinstall the operating system. I tried Seagate's partitioning software, but this did not work on Windows 2003. I tried putting the disk in external USB SATA drive housing, but beyond 2.2TB this housing did not work. Eventually I plugged the drive internally within a Windows Vista PC and was able to use Seagate's software to partition the drive. I then plug it the partitioned disk into the Windows 2003 server and it worked fine.
