:rolleyes:
From what I can tell, specs say 2TB max or some say 3TB.
Probably understated as usual.
Currently, I have 3 x 500 gb and 1 x 2TB (and an external 2TB). No problems. Actually, I'd like to add 3 more 2TB drives inside and get rid of the 500gb drives. Not sure I can run this config. Anyone doing this or any thoughts on the REAL capacity of these machines?
Would be grateful to hear back.

EveryMac.com is wrong... the MacPro 1.1 can handle over 2TB of hard drives I know because I have over 3TB in mine.
Those limits normally just reflect the largest drives available at the time not a real limit on what the hardware can use.
Therefore, I can formally say on Internet, that you can't believe everything you see on the Internet. :clap:

So much for sourcing... :( I guess I have to find better sources....
