Moved a hard drive to an USB enclosure and Windows decided to LOCK (or in its own words GPT Protective)my 3TB drive full of movies. Now I have to decide which ones to MANUALLY restore, through basically verbose commands, to a smaller hard drive and which ones will be deleted using the CLEAN command...

Can't you put that drive back into a 64-bit machine and copy your things to another drive from there?
Then clean it and put it back in the USB enclosure.

I appreciate the help, but I don't have a big enough drive to copy all of it nor enough drives. The drive is accessible, just not in the graphical sense. I am using a program called testdisk to restore the files, the ones I can anyways.
My understanding is that Windows during installation sees the drive, sees it uses GPT, then installs a unique identifier hash into the partition as a form of security. This I believe prevents Joe Blow from walking past a server and taking out a drive to view the data. I guess I could try gparted in Linux but I believe the unique hash will be an issue.
I could be completely wrong in my theory.

Windows 8.
This has been an issue with Windows 7 when GPT partitions became more mainstream due to larger hard drives.
I mainly posted so everyone here is aware of the issue and to vent.

Errrmmm.... What???

Do you still roll with Windows XP too Evan???

Ive moved drives between PCs and not had that issue yet, youll have issues using a drive or array larger than 2TB if you dont step up.

This is what happens when I don't get much sleep haha(DOH)

I stopped using xp when Microsoft dropped support but I do have a xp machine still(don't use it much)it may see more use now that I have a tech-2 for my caddie

I always use the defaults when formatting a drive unless it's for a ipod drive(have to have them unformatted)
