Windows 7

Hi there any help greatly appreciated.

MBR or GPT partitioning style is best for WD 80GB External Hard drives to access from Windows 7, Windows XP and WIndows Server 2003
I have Western Digital 80gb and 2TB
External Hard Drives.
Iam trying to initialize the Hard disks.

In the Computer--Disk Management
I tried to initialize them. It is asking

me the Partition style
for the selected disks. MBR or GPT

partioning style is best.
I need to access these drives for storage

through USB from
Computers having Windows7 Professional

64bit, Windows XP
and Windows Server 2003.

Thanks & Regards,

  1. Use MBR partitions. The only reason to use GPT partitions is for drives larger than 2TB.
