Default configuration: A standard volume, with an MBR partition on a basic disk, has a limit of 2 TB. This configuration is the default for Windows Server® 2003. In this configuration, the vRanger repository cannot exceed 2 TB.
Dynamic disks: Dynamic disks contain dynamic volumes, including simple volumes, spanned volumes, striped volumes, mirrored volumes, and RAID-5 volumes. A repository on dynamic disk volumes can be as large as 64 TB.
GPT volumes: GUID partition table (GPT) volumes provide a more flexible mechanism for partitioning disks than the older Master Boot Record (MBR) partitioning scheme that has been common to PCs. GPT partitions are supported on Windows Server 2003, SP1 and later, and can reach up to 256 TB. For more information, see
