^ For what purpose? SATA itself doesn't have any *practical* capacity limit but with windows, drives over 2TB need to be GPT rather than MBR which is what windows would format it as anyway, at least any remotely modern version.

Win7 x32, and older OS can't boot from a GPT par***ion (Win7 x64 can, and any newer using UEFI bios), but Vista and newer can still access a GPT single par***ion drive as supplemental storage if that's the intention - and is what I'd do, while running the OS from an SSD instead.

This does exceed the max par***ion size of 2TB for FAT32 but I doubt many people need 16TB HDD if also limited to FAT32's 4GB file size, would be running some other newer filesystem that can handle 16TB par***ions.

I could be wrong with some of the above... haven't ran into this issue in a very long time. The general rule of thumb is that if whatever you're doing works with drives larger than 2TB, the upper limit is higher than HDD capacity is ever likely to reach within the lifetime of the system (many years to come), that limit is something something PB not TB.
