Does anyone know if this is one 3 TB drives or two 1.5 TB drives in RAID 0.

I imagine it's the latter given the price of $250.

Sweet monkey juice!

Is it just a single 3 TB SATA drive?

Would love to get a couple to replace the 1.5 TB drives in my FS then.

I hope the fixed the clicking noise. I brought a 1.5 version of the drive on saturday  and right out of the box it made a clicking sound.

What happens if you format it to 3TB with your 64 bit desktop but then need to get at your files on a 32 bit laptop?

Not sure, but I'd imagine the OS couldn't touch it without repartitioning and reformatting.

You could always partition 1x2 TB section and 1x1 TB section, or 2x1.5 TB sections to be on the safe side.
