^^ Windows XP 32-bit does not support volumes with capacities exceeding 2TB.
When referring to drive capacity, one gigabyte, or GB, equals one billion bytesand one terabyte, or TB, equals one thousand billion bytes. Your computer’soperating system may use a different standard of measurement and report a lowercapacity. In addition, some of the listed capacity is used for formatting andother functions and will not be available for data storage.
