I bought My Book Mirror edition 2 TB today, but my windows 7 64B can only find 1 TB, what is wrong can anybody help me?
HI THIS HARD DRIVE COMES FACTORY FORMATED RAID 1 AND YOU WILL ONLY SEE 1TB
RAID 1 MIRROS THE CONTENTS OF THE DISK MAKING A FORM OF 1:1 RATIO REALTIME BACKUP THE CONTENTS OF THE DISK IN THE ARRAY ARE IDENTICAL TO THAT OF EVERY OTHER DISK IN THE ARRAY.DURING THE WRITING PROCESS IT COPY’S THE DATA IDENTICALLY TO BOTH DRIVES.
that means i can only use 1 TB on this one?
You can use 2TB by chaning from RAID 1 to RAID 0 using supplied utility called WD Drive Manager.
Advantage of using RAID 1 (only 1TB) is in case 1 drive goes bad, you have the data intact.
Advantage of using RAID 0 (all 2TB) is size, but lacks the RAID1 advantage above.
