The End Is Here
Sorry to say that I've heard from numerous people with 3+ TB's
and they have grave reservations about Acronis/Seagate/WD's
Extended Capacity Manager to get full MBR 3TB HDD's and they
say that the "4096", "NTFS" and "Format" won't work.
Well, I HATE to admit defeat, but since I CANNOT find the
Ghost v126.96.36.1998 from GSS 2.5.1 that DOES see GPT HDD's,
I've concluded that my only recourse is to relegate my 3TB to
GPT and to BACKUP status to my 2TB Toshiba and dusted-off 1TB
Hitachi MBR HDD's that I'll be using as my main drives.
After numerous E-Mails to a bunch of Cloning Software companies,
I've settled on MiniTool Partition Wizard v8.1.1 from
Free Partition Magic alternative, partition manager freeware, partition magic server, partition magic Windows 7 and free Partition Manager software for Windows 7/8/VISTA/XP/2000 and Windows Server 2003/2008/2000.
(To top it off, it's FREE!!!)
to pre-partition my 3TBer and to do the "Copy partitions from
my 1 and 2TB MBR's to partitions on my 3TB GPT" and use my
Ghost v188.8.131.529's Make and Restore Bootable CD's to do my
MBR C and D Drive imaging chores.
It's been fun--NOT!
