Formatting ssd drive

Recommended Posts

Just purchased wd blue 4tb ssd drive. Intended to be used internally in a win 7 pc. Right now I have it attached  through a usb port externally and trying to format it to its full capacity using Disk Management. However using ntfs it is only allowing me to create a simple volume and max size of 2 tb.

Answered this in another thread. Convert it to a GPT Disk in order to go above 2TB. (A 64-bit Windows is required to accomplish this.)

You do know that Windows 7 is being abandoned by Microsoft this January 14th? You might want to think about upgrading to Windows 10 64-bit in the very near future.
