Questions about this item:

steve b  I have both a 32 bit computer running Windows XP and a new 64 bit computer running windows 7. I wish to purchase the above 4TB hard drive and configure it to run RAID 1 (safe) and use it with both computers. In other publications I was led to believe that a 32 bit operating system would not be able to recognize or use a 4TB hard drive. Is this correct? A second but related question; Since a RAID 1 format is essentially just two 2TB Hard Drives, would a 32 bit operating system be able to "use" a 4TB hard drive configured in RAID 1?
edward w  EXCELLENT question..I would ALSO like the answer with myself on a 32 bit VISTA system.. EW
