If you’re planning on buying a very large hard drive – over 2 TB, there are some problems which arise. Most systems only support up to 2 TB of drive space, but there is a work-around if you are using Windows 7 and above.
Note – you can buy a 4 TB drive for as little as $150.
I’d probably only use such a large drive as a “data” drive or a backup drive.
