Re: Vostro 470 use too much space on the hard drive

Legacy MBR partitions are Limited to 2TB.

Bootable GPT partitions are advanced format and REQUIRE 64 bit os and Windows 7 SP1 or higher with intel RST or higher PRE INSTALLED F6 mode.

Segate makes Use DiscWizard Extended Capacity Manager Software .


Seagate Extended Capacity Manager

The Seagate Extended Capacity Manager (ECM) allows your operating system (OS) to support large capacity disks that have the MBR partition style. You are able to use the disk space beyond 2 TB. This free space will be recognized as a separate disk, and will be usable by your operating system and applications as if it were a regular physical hard disk. (ECM User Guide)
