The bitterness of poor quality lasts long after the sweetness of the low price is forgotten . . . life is too short to drink bad wine

GPT (GUID Partition Table) is the secret sauce.

Since the beginning of the PC, partitions were defined by the "master boot record" (MBR). But it had a 2 terabyte limit, and GPT was needed to go past that barrier.

A device that has GPT support can handle any size partitions. A device without GPT is limited to 2 terabyte partitions.
