Sinofsky was once again blew open the covers on a big question mark for Windows 8. In the past, Windows 7 supported large hard drive partitions but Microsoft is about to update Windows to the future of extra large hardrives. These sleek boxes can hold nearly 4 Terabytes of data… naturally this is where computers are heading.
Desktop towers are continually getting more capacity and with Windows 8, people on large storage computers computers will still enjoy the same Windows 8 legendary performance.
Using the NFTS file system, Windows 8 will not halt the performance on large terabyte drives. Everything from partitions to large section files will work fluidly.
“NTFS in Windows 8 fully leverages capabilities delivered by our industry partners to efficiently support very large capacity disks. You can rest assured that your large-capacity storage needs will be well handled beginning with Windows 8 and NTFS!”
