Installation manual



This not an Akasa external hard drive issue. It is a 2 TB volume limit caused by the Master Boot Record (MBR) partitioning system that has been used by Windows 32-bit operating systems such us Windows 2000 and XP.

Akasa External USB, and eSATA enclosures using HDD's over 2 TB's cannot be formatted on Windows 32-bit operating systems using the Master Boot Record (MBR) partitioning scheme. This means when you connect drives over 2 TB's, they may not be recognized at all, may be only partially recognized, or they may be recognized but not accessible. Other PC problems such as system lock up or computer failure to boot up may occur.

Depending on your hardware, there are freeware solutions available which will help you navigate around this limitation.
