    Why does WHS2011 split the data partition when its over 2TB? (when using UEFI/DUET install method)

    ie: 60gb for system

    then 2040GB for data partition,
    then 694.3 GB empty (?)

    I still use WHS2011 because the 2012 version does not support XP machines.
    I am using it to back up POS 2009 systems.

    thanks

    I only use whs 2011 for backups only (no shared folders), will the remaining 694.3gb be used or do I have to resize it and remove the 694.3gb

    Thanks
