Mounting and partitioning a new hot-swappable drive

First you want to insert your drive into the hot-swappable array in the TriCaster. See How Do I Insert/Remove A Drive From Tricaster's Removable Drive Bay for additional information on that.

Next, open the start menu and search for Computer Management.

Navigate to storage, then disk management.

Then right-click on the black unallocated disk space and choose New Simple Volume

Then choose the following settings to configure the drive.

You will then see the following in Computer Management

And the new volume in My Computer

If you are looking to convert your drive to GPT format as suggested for all media drives please follow these steps:

To change a master boot record disk into a GUID partition table disk using a command line

  1. Back up or move the data on the basic master boot record (MBR) disk you want to convert into a GUID partition table (GPT) disk.

  2. Open an elevated command prompt (right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator) and type diskpart. If the disk does not contain any partitions or volumes, skip to step 6.

  3. At the DISKPART prompt, type list disk. Make note of the disk number you want to convert.

  4. At the DISKPART prompt, type select disk <disknumber>.

  5. At the DISKPART prompt, type clean.

*IMPORTANT: Running the clean command will delete all partitions or volumes on the disk.*

  1. At the DISKPART prompt, type convert gpt.
