Seagate confirms 3TB drive

Seagate’s senior product manager Barbara Craig has confirmed “we are announcing a 3TB drive later this year,” but the move to 3TB of storage space apparently involves a lot more work than simply upping the areal density.

The ancient foundations of the PC’s three-decade legacy has once again reared its DOS-era head, revealing that many of today’s PCs are simply incapable of coping with hard drives that have a larger capacity than 2.1TB.

To get past this you need  UEFI, 64-bit OS and new partition table
