    Hard drive upgrade ?

    Hi what's the limit on hard drive data size. Was thinking of swapping my 2TB HD for a 8TB, as I use the HD51 as DLNA Server. Another option is attaching an existing 5TB external HD. But not sure if this will show up on the miniDLNA sever. Thanks

    Follow up question to my orginal post. Have a 2.5 inch drive installed at present. Would a 3.5 inch physically fit and also not over burden the power supply of the HD51. Thanks

    Also check the physical size and space within the box. 2.5 inch drives above 2T bytes are often double the height of drives of 2T bytes and below.

    Thanks for replying. Managed to shoe horn 5TB Toshiba 3.5 HD in. Copied old 2TD data via usb 3.0 port, didn't seem to get to hot. Not the prettiest, but all seem to be working, for now anyway.
