I just bought a 6TB HD from WD and I cannot make bigger partitions than 2TB. I looked up in some tutorials like this one, but I still have the problem that
lsblk display that there are only 2 TB space on the harddisk without partitions.
(parted) print Model: ATA WDC WD60EFRX-68L (scsi) Disk /dev/sdi: 2199GB Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B Partition Table: gpt GPT fdisk (gdisk) version 1.0.1 Partition table scan: MBR: protective BSD: not present APM: not present GPT: present Found valid GPT with protective MBR; using GPT. Disk /dev/sdi: 4294967294 sectors, 2.0 TiB Logical sector size: 512 bytes Disk identifier (GUID): 5347B4F4-DFDD-446B-B2E2-8E8D66886DEC Partition table holds up to 128 entries First usable sector is 34, last usable sector is 4294967260 Partitions will be aligned on 2048-sector boundaries Total free space is 4294967227 sectors (2.0 TiB)
Does somebody know where the problem could be?
I'm using Ubuntu 16.04.
