A decent price for a 3TB external drive. The specifications state that the drive is compatible with Windows XP; how is that possible? I thought XP had a 2TB limit on drives...

However I heard that if you format a drive a certain way on another computer you can make 3TB compatible with XP. Is this drive already formatted to make it work on XP?

I have a somewhat infamous XP Pro machine that I use as a NAS and I always thought I was limited to 2TB external drives. Perhaps I'm wrong?
2TB limit is for 32bit operating systems.
