DNS-343 4TB HDD Support? Tags: NAS / RAID Support D-Link Storage Hard Drives NAS Storage Last response: March 6, 2014 4:05 PM in Storage Share bluegrassbandit42 March 6, 2014 9:07:28 AM Is it possible to mod this box to support 4tb drives? I have put the drive into the 1st bay, and the NAS will recognize it. It even shows the correct capacity, and will display the "SMART" results for the drive. If I try to format it, it initializes to 100%, formats to 100%, and then the NAS just stops. It actually loses connection to the network. If I attempt a shutdown by holding down the power button, it gets stuck saying the system is halting. I have left it for almost 20 hours, and it still had not shut down. I really would like to get 4tb support with this box. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone for your help in advance...

It is only officially supporting up to 3TB drives. I was hoping someone had done a mod to make this work with 4TB drives. I have learned that D-Link is not the way to go with NAS, and will be selling this device in favor of Synology devices for the future. Thanks again...
