    Hello!

    I have been using Scenalyzer pretty successfully for some time now on an older computer for the optical scene recognition, but after a recent hardware upgrade I've discovered some strange problems.

    I moved my entire capture operation from a Win7Prox64 Pentium D to a Win10Prox64 i7.

    I've also changed from a 512GB external USB 2.0 capture drive to a 5TB USB 3.0 drive on a super speed 3.0 port, both NTFS.

    Suddenly Scenalyzer takes upwards of 70 minutes to commit clip changes to a 90min DV transfer on this new rig, when it took between 20 and 30 on average on the old system. Additionally Scenalyzer believed from the very first time I plugged the 5TB drive in that it was only 600GB, much smaller than it is, and now at only 590GB used reports that the drive is out of space.

    Are there ways to get around these limitations, or is this just Scenalyzer not understanding newer technology?

    Well in normal circumstances I believe there is a 2 TB limit for a NTFS drive. You would have to reformat that drive to get the full 5 TB on one volume.

    According to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/it-pro/windows-server-2003/...4%28v=ws.10%29 :

    In theory, the maximum NTFS volume size is 264 clusters minus 1 cluster. However, the maximum NTFS volume size as implemented in Windows Server 2003 is 232 clusters minus 1 cluster. For example, using 64-KB clusters, the maximum NTFS volume size is 256 terabytes minus 64 KB. Using the default cluster size of 4 KB, the maximum NTFS volume size is 16 terabytes minus 4 KB.

    Maybe Scenalyzer is not entirely compatible with Windows 10???

    Where does the OP write about Windows Server ?

    True that the max volume size CAN be greater than 2 TB but 4K is not a default format size for a standard PC. Or is it ?

    But don't these drives come pre-formatted ? Windoze should still report it's true size.

    The OP doesn't. But that doesn't really matter. The article is about NTFS.

    I really should have already gotten used to people making highly-stupid comments about almost-anything that I write.
    But I haven't, and I won't.

    But I guess there were other sources that you could have quoted without confusing the issue.

    And if you think I am being 'highly stupid' you need to get off your pedestal.

    Now just for my benefit (and maybe the OP) kindly explain from this:

    https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/askcore/2010/02/18/understanding-the-2-tb-limit-in...ndows-storage/

    why a Windows PC can not support a NTFS volume in excess of 2 TB

    nonsense db83. the 2TB limit vanished long ago. look up GPT, or GUID Partition Table.
