    I am having 2 issues:
    I am running Windows XP SP3. The 3TB drive is an external drive and not my system drive...used just for additional storage.

    1. The tool does not recognize the entire 3TB of the drive. It only recognizes 2047.9GB The drive is a WD RED 3TB (WD30EFRX)

    2. I tried anyway to make a partition on the useable space and it bombs out with an error:
    "Operation Failed - Can't mount partition" Error Source: Hard Disk Manager Error Code: 0x1004c

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    This drive is designed for NAS. This is possibly the reason why it isn´t recognized by the GPT Loader.

    It's weird....the version of the software that I downloaded (today) doesn't look like what is in the documentation...the version I have is a bunch of wizards, but the docs show a utility like Windows Disk Manager...in fact even after running the GPT Loader, I never see the drive in Windows.
