The limit is technically 137G, although you may see a figure slightly lower. The limit may be imposed by the OS, but it may be imposed by the motherboard/BIOS. Drive manufacturers also sometimes install a limiting jumper on drives larger than 137G; check your hard drive's documentation on that or give us the exact make/model of the drive.

In terms of the OS, you'll need to be running Win 2000 Pro or Server with Service Pack 3 (or higher), or Win XP Home or Pro with SP1 or higher.


2k's filesystem can be FAT32 or NTFS
If you upgraded it or its not like a buisnessey model or ex-nmetwork then its probably fat - right click on the drive and do properties to see the filesytem type cos NTFS supports 1tb but FAT32 has a limit


no there isn't non pro version of win 2k, and ME are not related to the 2k windows, they are different os's.
