Support for large hard drive PERC H700

Nobody knows the biggest SATA drives supported by a PERC H700 in a PowerEdge R710? I read on another post that the H700 will support 3 TB disks. Would like to know whether he would support also 4 TB and disks of 6 TB.

Thank you




I can see 4 TB SATA HD as supported but not 6 TB. It may be supported but not yet committed.

    Changing the iTunes media folder location setting affects only where new additions to your library will be stored.  To use a disk external drive to store your library complete (and assuming that you have access to the original data of the library on an old computer) you must copy the iTunes folder, by default in C:\Users\username\Music, on the external drive - structure library and its records should be like this:

  • Maximum supported size of HARD drive for HP Elitebook 8440p Windows 7 Pro 64 bit runing

    Hello, I just bought a HP Elitebook 8440p "off lease" of Tigerdirect and seeks to upgrade the two memory (from 4 GB to 8 GB) and put in the eligible of the biggest HARD drive I can. Either a 512 GB SSD or a 1 TB WD hybrid WD BLACK2 (1 TB HDD / 120 GB SSD Combo drive in a single package!). I would like to see more large disk addressable by using Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit OS since I don't seem able to find this info on the web. HP offers only only a 256 GB SSD in its specifications. but I didn't know if it was do limitations of BIOS or availability at the time of production, even for the HARD drive to 512 GB.

    Also, I would like to know if 9.5 mm compliant Bay that it needs to be for the WD drive. Can't find that either, and while the new laptop has not yet happen, all measure exactly the same way regarding what works and what simply cannot be "cheated".

    Thank you for taking the time to read this and NO information to that effect would be Greatl appreciated!

    Essentially the reason why you do not have a maximum size of hard drive is because there is not everything. Between SATA and 64-bit OS', worrying about maximum size of hard drive is a thing of the past. Are the biggest readers found in the manual, as you suspected him, just a function of the market at the time of manufacture. It was a few years ago now, it is so understandable that the offerings were "at the time" more thin than now.

    Here is the Service Manual:


    Page 4-9 shows the procedure of the Bay and the replacement of the hard disk. The Bay is made for a 9.5 mm thickness 2.5-inch wide SATA hard but the new 7 mm readers also works. The black hybrid drive requires some software (included in the package) to treat the two drives in Windows and I read a modest amount of disappointment in the documentation about them. If you can afford the 512 GB SSD go in this direction and you will not be sorry. I use a Samsung 840 Evo and it has worked perfectly for me for almost 2 years and the most recent 850 I hear is even better.

  • How to switch my system on a larger hard drive without having to reinstall the OS and lose my data?

    replace the hard drive

    I'm looking to replace my hard drive but I need all the files it is about it, passing a small hard drive to a larger hard drive. My question is how can I save all the files on the disk and how can I get the operating system on the new hard drive without the original disk

    If your current system does not work, there is no need to bother with data backup, installation of applications and get a Windows XP installation CD (although regular backups are important to do as a general practice).

    Instead, clone your current hard drive to your new hard drive.  All you need is an external hard drive enclosure and disk cloning software.  In addition, once you have made sure that everything works correctly, put the old drive in the external box and use it for backups.

    Some of the cloning apps below are also disk 'images' (e.g. Acronis True Image).  A disk image can be compressed so that, for example 58 GB of data can produce a 40 GB image file.  Some of the apps, and of also can selectively backup specified files.

    The housings of external drives more to connect to a USB port.  Make sure just that buy you one with the good 'form factor' (portable = 2.5 inches, computer desktop/Tower = 3.5 inches) and internal drive connector.  Many but not all speakers can deal with SATA and PATA time.

    This example (for laptops) is not the less expensive external hard drive enclosure, but it's a decent case that can be used with either SATA or IDE (PATA) drives and comes with its own software package of cloning:

    It is a very good buy for a drive IDE (PATA) Office size:

    In general, Newegg is a good place for your search options by looking at the comments by users.

    If you have a Western Digital hard drive, you can get a version of Acronis True Image free of WD ( or you can get the software of cloning separately (this is not an exhaustive list and in no particular order, some are free, some not):

    Acronis True Image Home
    EASEUS ToDo Backup
    Paragon Drive Copy or Partition Manager Personal
    Norton Ghost


    Macrium Reflect free

  • Can satellite A30 - I install a larger HARD drive?

    I thought I had taken care with boards and pieces of kit. but after the reconstruction of my A30 (having the replaced DC Jack), he comes up with the following messages:

    * SMART failure provided on hard disk 0: TOSHIBA MK4018GAS (PM) *.
    * WARNING: Immediately back up your data and replace your hard drive. A failure may be imminent.*
    * Press F1 to continue. *

    I tried winding connector to HARD drive decision-making, which seems OK.

    So start thinking I killed this disk somehow. If Yes, can I install a larger drive, say 80 or even 160 GB and should I look for a magic word MK4018GAS, or is it SATA or IDE, I'm looking.

    Thank you. Robin


    If you delete the old HDD, you can see if an IDE or SATA HDD but the Satellite A30 is equipped with an IDE HDD.

    You can use a larger HARD drive. This should not be a problem, but as far as I know this laptop has a limitation of LBA 28 bits. This means that the disc size limit is 128GB and so you can use a 120 GB HARD drive.
    If you want to learn more about this read the article on Wikipedia or here:

    So, you can buy a 120 GB HARD drive or an 80 GB HARD drive as you suggest. I have good experiences with Hitachi and Seagate hard drives.

    In any case, I think that it s a good idea to exchange the HARD drive. SMART error message appears as if there is something wrong with the HARD drive to back up your data as quickly as possible. ;)

    Good bye

  • More large hard drive

    Can I replace 60 G Cdrive with a bigger hard drive. How can I transfer the operating system and programs installed to the new drive. HP 6 G drive may be removed or used.

    jonnbrown wrote: I can replace 60 G Cdrive with a bigger hard drive. How can I transfer the operating system and programs installed to the new drive. HP 6 G drive may be removed or used.

    Hello jonnbrown, you can almost always replace an existing hard drive with a larger capacity hard drive. There are a few considerations to know.

    You must know the limitations of the BIOS for a hard drive. Some allow up to 127 GB of capacity. Most more recent system BIOS will allow the larger hard disks.

    It may be possible to update an older BIOS so that it would accept a HDD capacity more than the limit of 127 GB.

    It is suggested that, whenever you replace a hard drive in a system, you perform a new installation of the operating system.

    Sometimes, you can use a program that does a disk hard image and save it to another device, such as an external hard drive and the use of this image to restore new hard disk. You cannot be to simply copy data from the old hard drive to the new hard drive.

    You may be able to use the 60 GB hard drive as a backup disk once the new hard drive is installed and the system works as it should, if you have a location in the case of another hard drive.

  • Can what larger HARD drive I use on Portege 7200ct?

    Ive got a toshiba portege 7200ct, what is the largest hard drive recognizable by the laptop?
    That I get an insert system disk in drive when I put in a 40 GB drive

    Thank you


    The Portege 7200ct seems to be an older unit.
    I googled around and found some info on the delivered HARD drive.
    It seems that the laptop came with a 12 GB of HARD drive.

    ARIN, I think 20 GB HARD drive would work and in my opinion the BIOS does not recognize the larger hard drives.
    But "suck it and see '.
    You know it; You can visit a computer store and test drives. Maybe you are a lucky man and run a larger HARD drive (but I don't)

  • Options of data recovery for crashed HARD drive

    My friend HARD drive gone bad. She has not saved. She has her thesis on it (any resemblance to characters from the fictional movie, living or dead, is coincidentalt. "It's true).

    I know there are options to recover the data. But I'm not familiar with all of them and how much they cost.

    One of her friends which is a network administrator, and continued his studies of masters in computer security will attempt to recover the data for it. I fear that it may just try to boot from a CD and try to read the data, which can worsen the damage.

    What other options does have?

    Thank you

    If it crashed, she may need data recovery specialists.

    These are some $$$.

    You can read this:

    1. slave of your hard drive in another computer and read/save your data out there.

    2. put your Hard drive in a USB hard drive case, plug it into another computer and read/save from there.

    3 Alternatively, use Knoppix Live CD to recover data:


    Download/save the file Knoppix Live CD ISO above.


    Download the Vista software from the link above.

    After installing above ISO burning software, right click on the Knoppix ISO file > copy the Image to a CD.

    Knoppix is not installed on your PC; use only the resources of your PC, RAM, graphics etc.

    Change the boot order in YOUR computer/laptop to the CD/DVD Drive 1st in the boot order.

    Plug a Flash Drive/Memory Stick, BOOT with the Live CD, and you should be able to read the hard drive.

    When the desktop loads, you will see at least two drive hard icons on the desktop (one for your hard drive) and one for the USB key.

    Click on the icons of hard drive to open and to understand which drive is which.

    Click the icon for the USB drive and click on "Actions > Change the read/write mode" so you can write to disk (it is read-only by default for security reasons).

    Now to find the files you want to back up, just drag and drop them on the USB. When you're done, shut down the system and remove the USB key.

    See you soon.

  • Is it dangerous for the HARD drive, the icon she samples D:\?

    Is it dangerous for the HARD drive, the icon she samples D:\?
    .. The example of the start menu button is also in D:\. (Classic interface)

    I downloaded the 'old' Nice and exchanged icons on my desktop.
    The user, workstation, trash ones and two new folders using the icons for them also.

    The question is - I moved these new icon samples in D:\ (which is not the main drive) and I was wondering if the PIN that reads the HARD drive is physically mobile all the time on one side of the disc to another. Because the icons are located in the D:\... and these icons are defined on elements that are found in C:\, lol!

    so I was wondering If it damage the hard drive (physically)!

    Please answer, thank you!

    Hi Kaloyan,

    Keep the icons in the D drive or any other drive which is not the main drive does not affect the HARD drive somehow.
  • My dv7-7121nr has a place for 2 hard drives internally? (ssd)

    The subject says. I am wanting to add an SSD for fast loading games and windows itself, but I don't know that I want to sacrifice the size of the HARD disk here already. I doubt it has 2 slots, but I thought it would be good to ask.


    All dv7s have 2 HDD bays, however only the first Bay is bootable, so if you want to boot from SSD, you need to install Windows on this drive and in Exchange for your HARD drive current in the second span in use for storage - you can also buy a caddy for the second span HP or a site such as this.

  • Mobile LR catalog for external hard drive

    I'm new and in the process of learning LR.  Currently, all my photos are stored and developed in my laptop, but it becomes too much for her hard drive.  I am thinkinng to move all of the LR catalog to an external hard drive.  Could someone please give me some advice how to proceed safely and also how to point LR to its new location, when I open the icon.

    Thank you very much.

    I am pleased to announce that the project has been successfully completed. Thanks to the advice of everyone. That's what I did:

    Some new pictures, asking them to be stored in a subfolder created in the new external hard drive G: has imported. This issue, namely "My LR Photos", is intended to store all my photos in LR in the future. I thought that this will force the G: drive is displayed on the Panel in my LR records. He did.

    Then, in the LR on the Control Panel folder, I moved each subfolder of C: drive for the new folder photo in G:. All photos moved smoothly with their predetermined data intact. None should be reconnected to the original sound.

    I relaunch LR several times to make sure it works and you have no problem at all. It seems to work faster now too.

    I want to thank all three of you for taking interest to share your knowledge and help me to do this without pain.  Best regards.

    Special note to JimHess: I really appreciate your conversation with dj_paige help air cake2 with his problem on another thread. I had a almost the same problem with my LR and worked it out well based on your and dj to air cake2 information.
