In the past, Windows 7 supported large hard drive partitions but Microsoft is about to update C drive is shown with 2.71 TB free of 2.72 TBWindows 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 In 2010, Capacity is 2 TB; in 2011, 3 TB; gradually increasing to a (predicted ) 7 TB in 2015getting 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!”
