Hi.I have windows xp SP3 with bootit bare metal.
My question is can i connect a 3TB under usb and be able to Copy/Move/Delete FIles under WIndows XP?
I know windows XP dont see 3TB but can i do it throught TBEXPLO utility??
I did that on past but my files was get corrupted.
So is it safe now to do file operations now?I repeat im using windows XP and i dont want go to WIndows 7.

Hopefully, you have all the MS updates for XP already?

No I dont have all updates.So Is ok if i want to copy or move file to my external Usb?
I did that on past once with a old version of Bootit Bare Metal But when i compared the files after the copy result was
a file was invalid to read...example an AVI file.
All i ask is one yes or no...So can i do it ?

From a previous TeraByte Support post....

"If you want to use the 2TiB and forget about the 1TiB then just use BIBM to create a 2TiB (max
partition size it allows) and use that"

you can use tbosdt and the scripts to directly access the partition/physical
drive (it needs to be formatted GPT or use a larger sector size to use MBR).
