3TB disk seen as 746GB on Windows 7 64bit
Posted 21 December 2012 - 04:37 PM
I formatted the 3TB disk from Windows vista 32bit, and the disk was in a USB enclosure. The disk is now a data disk inside a Windows 7 64bit box, with the latest updates applied.
cut the disk into 4 partitions, 750GBx3, plus the remaining one.
mobo is ASRock 960GB/U3S3 FX

After booting on your windows 7 x64, go to device manager, and find the "friendly name" of the wd 3tb (should be WDC WD30EZRX under disk drives) , then in the view menu select device by connection and deploy everything needed to find again the wd 3tb. What you 'll know then is the on which sata controller is connected the drive. Then right click on the device controller and select properties and go to driver tab. You should see the date and the version of the driver then clicking on driver detail will also let us know which file is used as device driver. This driver is most likely completely out of date and should be updated.
For the record, amd lastest chipset drivers are there.
And lastest asmedia sata 3 drivers are there (taken from asus website as asmedia doesn't have an official open support site).
