I have an EX475 and a WD Green 3TB drive. Putting the drive in the server it shows only 750GB of storage. I have read about the limitations of using 3TB in a 32bit OS.

Can I put the drive in a Win 7 64 bit machine and format the disk with two partitions and then place this in the EX475 and add the two partitions to the storage pool?

How would I partition it in Win 7 if this is possible?

Thanks in advance?
