    Sorry if this has been covered before, but I am trying to add an external hard drive (EHD) to my 722 receiver.

    I know DISH states that it has to be 2 TB or less, however, I am currently using a 3 TB WD (WDBFJK0030HBK-04) that I purchased in 2015. I am wanting to add a second one - as I have hit the 1000 file limit issue. However, 2TB external desktop drives are not cheap and are getting hard to find.

    I cannot remember how I got my current WD 3 TB to work. But I recently purchased another 3TB, and 4 TB (only $3 more) and I have tried using the Windows disk partition utility to decrease the volume size to under 2 TB, but no luck. The disk is formated NTFS, does it need to be formatted differently to be recognized?
