Subject: [LinkStation_General] Maximum Size External USB Drive
Date: Wednesday, December 2, 2009, 10:24 AM
I recently tried to attach an external USB drive 1 TB...which the Linkstation HD-HLAN160, (or similar) could not mount. I then manually formated a 500GB EXT3 partition using Gparted...and the Linkstation could not mount it. Is it just too big? Anything (within reason) that can be done to use this external drive with my full linkstation?
And sort of related...Is it worth my effort to attempt to put in a larger drive inside the Linkstation, or at 5 years old, should I just replace it?
