HDD enclosure for SEAGATE Archive HDD 5TB

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I have new hdd - SEAGATE Archive HDD 5TB (ST5000AS0011) and my PC, because of its software RAID controller does not recognise full hdd capacity - it recognise under 600 Gb of hdd. That's why I'm looking for compatible HDD USB 3.0 enclosure.
Please recommend me one. It's a kind of hurry.

Best Regards!

Return it and buy the Seagate external version if that's what you want. I don't understand why your config would only see 600GB though. Can you explain more about the host system?

Dell Precision T3500 Tower Computer Workstation.

It sees other 3000GB drives as 700GB each.
At BIOS/UEFI capacity of HDD is as is, but at Ctrl+I screen (configure RAID) recognized capacity is much less.
With hdd enclosure "Icy Box IB-3662U3" Seagate ST5000AS0011 HDD is exactly 4600+GB
* I have not full access for test and diagnose. Workstation was delivered by unknown tech guy from Germany

Ugh, a T3500 is ancient. Chance of RAID controller firmware updates is slim to none, but worth a look all the same?
