Thread: Seagate NAS 4TB disk detected as 2.7TB

  1. #11

    Default Re: Seagate NAS 4TB disk detected as 2.7TB

    using gparted from system rescue cd reports: The backup GTP table is corrupt, but the primary appears OK, so that will be used,

    and then:


    "can't have a partition outside the disk!"

  2. #12

    Default Re: Seagate NAS 4TB disk detected as 2.7TB

    after the errors, working with gparted it seems that the disk is empty, with no partition table, so I try to create a new gtp partition table and it report the same error: can't have a partition outside the disk!

    after that

    Code:
    root@sysresccd /root % fdisk -l
    Disk /dev/loop0: 342.9 MiB, 359522304 bytes, 702192 sectors
    Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    
    
    Disk /dev/sda: 3.7 TiB, 4000785948160 bytes, 7814035055 sectors
    Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes
    I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes
    Disklabel type: gpt
    Disk identifier: 501C5905-B873-4B5C-BF1A-E56524BB9ED3

    and

    Code:
    root@sysresccd /root % gdisk -l /dev/sda
    GPT fdisk (gdisk) version 1.0.1
    
    Partition table scan:
      MBR: protective
      BSD: not present
      APM: not present
      GPT: present
    
    Found valid GPT with protective MBR; using GPT.
    Disk /dev/sda: 7814035055 sectors, 3.6 TiB
    Logical sector size: 512 bytes
    Disk identifier (GUID): 501C5905-B873-4B5C-BF1A-E56524BB9ED3
    Partition table holds up to 128 entries
    First usable sector is 34, last usable sector is 7814035021
    Partitions will be aligned on 2048-sector boundaries
    Total free space is 7814034988 sectors (3.6 TiB)
    
    Number  Start (sector)    End (sector)  Size       Code  Name

    So I use gdisk to partition it and create a linux partition table in all the disk

    and then

    Code:
    root@sysresccd /root % fdisk -l         
    Disk /dev/loop0: 342.9 MiB, 359522304 bytes, 702192 sectors

    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes

    hope it works!
