    Hi, Recently I built a RAID-10 array with 4 ST 1.5T disk, and format it as an single 2794G partition with GPT partition table.
    and then I start Disk Director, Its popuped a W000101F9 unsupported hard disk drive warning and I see a 0 size disk with two partition on it.
    first is "MBR and track0", second is "GUID Partition Table".
    I don't known it cause by Raid and/or GPT, but I think it's not an physics drive related problem.
    could someone tell me Is it a design or bug?

    I don't think DD supports GPT formatted drives.

    Oh, I have no other option to create an single partition gather than 2TB under Windows.
    diskmgmt killed my partition table tree yesterday but I have to use this dangerous tools (I am lucky to use Acronis Recovery Expert because it an MBR disk)...

    I've tested new Backup & Recovery 10 advanced server, and happy to see it supported my GPT+2.79G partition.
    I can't understand why Disk Director miss it.
