Tool to Limit LBA Size on WD Drives?

Postby nashton » Fri Jul 09, 2010 7:01 pm

Dear all:

Does anyone know where to find the tool to use to limit max lba for WD disks? I've looked all around, but cannot find anything.

The drive in question - a 1.5TB WD15EARS - does support 'Advanced Drive Format' and has a utility that allows you to 'align' a partition using a tool called WD Align, designed to allow older OSes to use newer drives to full capacity. Does anyone know if this will do the trick? There's a white paper at ... 771430.pdf.

I'm wanting to put this into a Thompson DSI8215.
