I have bought this hard drive: Seagate ST3000DM which is a 3TB 3.5" hard drive. When I connect it via a USB2 docking station, here is what OS X sees:
Disk Description : ST3000DM 001-9YN166 Media Total Capacity : 801.57 GB (801 569 726 464 Bytes) Connection Bus : USB Write Status : Read/Write Connection Type : External S.M.A.R.T. Status : Not Supported USB Serial Number : (removed) Partition Map Scheme : Unformatted
Is there a software solution to this problem ? I have seen solutions that imply to buy a USB3 docking station but MacBookPro 7.1 only have USB2 ports.
Is there an hardware solution that don't imply buying a NAS, which is about two or three times the price of the disk itself ?
