Your post is a little vague, just what are you asking?

Do you want to know if the M7F will support and 8TB drive?

Are planning to use RAID_1 with these two drives?

Please be more specific...

Sorry, I'm hoping that the drive is just a normal HDD for a PC. I'm not going to run RAID just 2 separate storage drives. The seller said that they are norpal pc, not server (I hope) but he said not all motherboards support a drive that big.

He is selling 2 and I was going to swap them for my 5*2 TB to save room in my case.

Thanks.

So, did you buy those 2 Shingled Magnetic Recording drives ?
Not a good choice, even more for Raid.
I Just found out Seagate released a firmware update, did you update ?
