Windows 2008 R2 and RAID 5 over 2TB
I have a new Dell Poweredge R510 that I want to set up as our Main File Server.
I have a 2 x 300GB which I want to sent up as RAID 1 (this is done no problem)
and 6 x 600GB set up as RAID 5.
I have a PERC 6/i RAID Controller installed and installed Windows 2008 R2 with SP1.
Everything seems ok until I log into Windows after the OS install and on th RAID 5 it is split showing the first 2TB and a 743 GB Partition. I can do whatever I need to do with the 2Tb but the 743GB is totally unuseable.
Is there a way to get the 743GB recognized properly and useable?
I also have the options to go RAID 6, 10 and 50 but have never used these RAID Setups before and am unsure.
Any help would be appreciated.
