WinXP Harddrive Limitations - Google is WAY too conflicting on this business...
I came across a 4y/o WinXP machine, mid-grade at the time of inception, that currently houses approx 500Gigs of HD space (for free). I'd like to turn this machine into a home for my backup movie files, accessible on my home network. This means I'd like to toss a couple TB's of HD space inside.
Ideally, I'd like to purchase 2-4TB's of harddrive & place onto the slave location and use it as storage, without attempting to load a new OS (Vista/Win7) on it to recognize such a large drive.
Of course I googled the size HD that's acceptable for WinXP, and pretty much only found places where people have asked if WinXP allows bigger HDs with no real answers. Anyone able to tell me if a 2-4TB drive is actually an option in WinXP?
Given the memory abilities of this machine, I really want to stick with XP, instead of my Vista or my soon-to-be-purchased Win7...Will/Can it recognize a few TBs or no?
