3.5” SATA to USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure w/ Fan
You may format your Hard Drive by using the USB connection.
Please make sure your External Enclosure is turned on and connected to the
PC before formatting the Hard Drive.
In order to use a disk volume larger than 2 TB's, you will need an operating system that
supports GUID Partitioning Table. Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP 64bit, Mac
10.4, and Mac 10.5 all have this capability through the GPT. The GUID partitioning scheme
has the ability to partition both internal and external drives far beyond 2 TB's in size.
STEP1: Right-click “My Computer” and select “Manage”.
STEP2: Select “Disk Management” and you will see your Hard Drive shown as “Unallocated”
(Disk number may vary)
