I have recently purchased a 3TB WD Green hard drive and am trying to run it as internal storage. I am currently running Ubuntu 12.04 on a 250GB WD harddrive. The OS was just installed so nothing really has been altered.
I have tried to partition the drive using GParted and the command prompt but get errors either way.
I get a warning in the command prompt when I use
sudo fdisk /dev/sdb as follows:
WARNING: The size of this disk is 3.0 TB (3000592982016 bytes). DOS partition table format can not be used on drives for volumes larger than (2199023255040 bytes) for 512-byte sectors. Use parted(1) and GUID partition table format (GPT).
The device presents a logical sector size that is smaller than the physical sector size. Aligning to a physical sector (or optimal I/O) size boundary is recommended, or performance may be impacted.
This is my first time using a linux based system so unfortunately I don't know what to do from here.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
