I have a WD 4TB Green drive in a USB enclosure connected to a Vista computer. It is partitioned GPT style - NTFS. It is shown as healthy in Disk Management with 3725 GB in capacity.
The problem: If I copy files onto it using Copy and Paste with Windows Explorer, everything is fine but if I add files with third party applications, the result is often, though not always, a corrupted file system on the drive.
I’m thinking that maybe Windows Explorer knows how to get around the ‘4TB problem’ but the other applications have difficulty with it. Thanks for any ideas.
