    I bought Paragon GPT loader & it works fine for my 3 TB Archive disk, but until..., I reinstall Windows XP OS again, - new installed WXP OS not see GPT 3 TB disk. I understand I must again install GPT & make partition on 3 TB disk ...., & how about my files , which was before on it ,... (3tb) disk ? After every reinstaling OS system I will lost all my data ? Because new instaled OS WXP again see only 786 gb... . How to make reinstalled OS WXP , see GPT archived files, without making partitions again & again after every reinstalling OS ? Very sorry my English , but I hope You will understand what I mean ... . :rolleyes:

    You probably are using 32-bit Windows XP (I've heard that 64-bit Windows XP is really bad). 32-bit OSes cannot access more than 2.19 TB in a single partition. There simply are not enough numbers in 32 bits to address 3 TB.

    A work around is a utility that creates a virtual single partition, by piecing together individual partitions. Gigabyte has a utility that will work on some of its motherboards, but only with certain chipsets.
