Then you're only using 2 TB of each of them. That's the limit unless you jump up to 16 TB.
This is incorrect. Just initialize the disk to GPT and size limits are a problem of the past.​

The reason I had trouble believing what you said is that the 2TB limit only applies in certain situations. I have no trouble accessing and using 4TB drives in a single partition under Win10. x64.

I also am using a recent model motherboard with UEFI bios enabled and have initialized the drive as GPT and not MBR. There are several articles explaining how to exceed the 2TB limitation, and here's an example.



..to fully utilize 4TB hard drive,you should initialize it to GPT. Secondly, to install Windows 10 on a GPT hard drive, make sure the motherboard supports UEFI or EFI boot mode that goes with GPT disk.


Link [diskpart.com]with further details.

In summary, I'm not saying you're wrong - maybe you are using a 32-bit OS or MBR formatted drive, in which case you would be limited, but that's not the case for anyone who meets the requirements above.

Yes, you can make changes to your PC to allow a partition that exceeds 2 TB. Is it something for a general PC user to do? Nope. That's all I was saying. Even if you know HOW, it can be a tedious process depending on components. I've been through the process, and it can be frustrating. Glad you got your drives working, but for someone who just wants to plug and play, they may want to reconsider. Have a good one.
