Re: 2TB USB hard drive for backing up



If you want to be happy and trouble-free, try to avoid «Advanced
Format» disks. I have 2TB disks and 1.5TB too that work perfectly but
I've made the mistake to buy a 3TB WD Caviar Green («Advanced Format»)
which I can only use on Windows as a 3TB disk, Linux only detects
about 780MB if I remember well. Try to not make the same mistake.
