Max USB HD capacity for Gateway Max TG799

Answered

Hi there.

 

I'm looking to add an external USB Hard Drive to my Gateway Max TG799 and wondering if there is a limit to the capacity I can add? I thought I'd read somewhere is was 2TB but can't be sure if that is correct.

 

Any advice appreciated - thanks.

 

Wayne.

  • You should be able to check the maximum size by logging into the gateway and going to Advanced > Content Sharing. Click on the help top right. The online help for Content sharing will open in a browser window. Scroll down to the bottom off the page to find the maximum size of the hard drive. For all the Technicolor gateways that I have seen it is 2 TB.

Knew I'd seen it somewhere - you're right it's in the online help for the device itself and it is 2TB.

 

Thanks for your help, very much appreciated.
