Great working, but some false advertising
This review is from: Verbatim Store 'n' Save 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop Hard Drive 97581
Pros: Compact enough to be portable, has on/off switch which is a very nice feature that most do not have. Compatible with any OS.
Cons: It's not really 3TB, it's actually 2.72 TB total. Compatibility with any OS comes at an inconvenience for some. In order to make it compatible with older OSs that cannot handle more than 2TB, the drive is partitioned (it also uses a file system that all will recognize). One partition size is of 2 TB and another with the rest which includes some bundled software.
Other Thoughts: If you have an issue with it being partitioned (as I did), this can be solved easily. Verbatim in fact has a utility that is called "Verbatim Mode Change Tool". Just do a search and get this utility which will change the drive into any amount of partitions and/or file system you wish to change to.
