    I installed a WD 3TB disk with the GPT disk manager software just fine and created a 2.7TB partition and formatted it just fine with and now have 1.5TB of Data on it. All Good.
    I then had to rebuild my Vista machine and ever since I have not been able to get the disk connected again. The Intel Matrix software at startup sees the drive as 746 GB. Windows starts then thinks the disk is broken and trying to do a disk scan. From another thread I found out how to add a drive letter in Windows disk manager as it wasnt being added automatically however that may be because for some reason Windows now thinks its an unformated (Raw) disk. I Have uninstalled and reinstalled the software with no change.

    Any ideas as to what I can do to mount this drive. I really dont want to blow away 1.5TB of data unnecessarily.

    Here are some screen shots that may help.

    The issue with Intel Matrix should be resolved in the latest version of Intel driver (v10.5.0 )

    Please uninstall GPT Disk manager (it will also remove GPT Loader driver), restart your PC, install the up-to-date Intel driver and restart again.

    Your 3TB drive should be shown correctly.

    Thanks for this. I downloaded the 'Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility' then the latest 'Intel Rapid Storage Technology' version and let Vista do a full disk check as it wanted to do (it fixed a few things) then it all worked just fine. Paragon GPT Disk manager is now not required.

    Appreciate your help
