Maximum Volume size with Windows Server 2003

By dliby ·
I am going to add an external drive array to a Windows Server 2003. Is there a size limit to the mapping of this array? I would like the array size to be approximately 4 TB.

Provided that it's external

There are only the size requirements imposed by the hardware used. I take it that you are looking at a NAS Network Attached Storage Device here and these can range from small to very big depending on what they comprise of but a 4 TB Limit shouldn't be a problem provided that you buy the correct NAS Device.

There is no limitation of the array but the hard disk. If you still want to maximize the size of the server 2003, you may use some partition tool to enlarge it. here is a tutorial Maximum Volume size with Windows Server 2003 http://www.partition-tool.com/resource/extend-system-partition-server-2003.htm

If it is NTFS, then the largest size you can produce is 1TB, FAT 500GB.

If you want to produce larger ones, you should use RAID.
