Seagate 3TB Barracuda XT 6Gb/s SATA III Hard Drive Review
Seagate 3TB Barracuda XT 6Gb/s SATA III Hard Drive Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: On the PCSTATS test bench today is Seagate's 3TB, 6Gb/s SATA III Barracuda XT hard drive which gets around the 2.1TB desktop storage capacity limitation by creating two partitions (2.1TB + 0.9TB) with the aid of Seagate's free DiskWizard software.

Seagate's Solution to the 2.1TB Barrier - DiskWizard

The DiskWizard Extended Capacity Disk tool displays the report below:

A simple click of the 'extend capacity' text allowed PCSTATS to configure a new partition which will draw from the remaining 0.8TB portion of the 3TB Barracuda XT hard drive.

The result is shown below. The new 'virtualized' disk and partition are nothing more than the 0.8TB section of the Barracuda XT.

Using DiskWizard PCSTATS can also remove the extended capacity and resize the partitions as required.

That's all there is too it. Simple indeed. Benchmarks are next.
