How big HD

  • I have just bought a Sabrent USB 3.0 to SATA External Hard Drive (EC-DFLT) 

    What size HDs can I use init I have just bought a WD 8TB Red Plus so hoping this will be OK. But is there a limit to what size HD the Sabrent will take.

    Do I need to update any software/firmware or will my Sabrent just work ok with the HD I have just bought (not received yet)


           Thank You


  • @Ken Walsh The DFLT can use multiple chipsets but these all are capable of using very large drives. Technically they are all rated for up to 8TB. It may be possible to update the firmware but that should not be required for capacity support. If you have any issues, please let us know.

  • Ok the Hard Drive arrives in a few days so will know then if ok. Thanks for getting back to me so quickly

                Many Thanks


  • Yes your spot on,  It see the 8TB HD just put in and seems to be working fine. Im just making a backup of my NAS and seems to be working ok

  • @Ken Walsh Thank you for the update, that's good to hear.
