Does anyone know of a limitation on a Device Size? I am working with a 1.7 TB Hardware RAID, single drive, however Apple System profiler is reporting it as over 1266000000.00 GB. Does anyone know of a limitation on device size? I know that there is a 2 TB Volume size limitation.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

You will lose about 6 gigs for every hundred due to formatting loss, and the different definitions of a gigabyte (base 2 vs Base 10) So if your advertised size of your drives equals 1.7 TB you should never expect to see that much usable space

As to device limits I am unsure of any scsi device limit but ATA on all but the fastest cards has a limit of 137gig per drive
