Maximum external hard drive size?
Merry Christmas everyone.
I did a title search for 'external size' and didn't find the answer.
I'm looking at the box of a WD Elements external and it says, verbatim:
"Mac OS X Tiger does not support drives with capacities greater than 2 TB"
That is on both the 2.5 and 3.0 versions.
Is that an issue in Lion?
Just want to make sure, thanks.

ok, well on a sidenote (when I go back I'll pick up the 3TB) concerning the NTFS drives I have now:
They were originally formatted in Windows for NTFS. The Mini reads the files just fine but doesn't write to either one.
One is a copy of the other (redundancy)
Can I format one in HFS+, copy the other files onto it, then format the first one in HFS+, copy the files back with no issues in the files?
Just looking for confirmation.
How does this factor in when it comes to bootcamp? Is there ONE good thread about that?
