Thanks guys. I had a suspicion a custom install might give me access. I'll give that a go.

I have never bought a So you start server, only OVH, but I am pretty sure it's because by default the drives are setup as RAID 1 for redundancy. If you are using the server for anything even slightly important you prob want this.

I purchased the SYS-IP-1 server which comes with 2x2TB of space yet I only see 2TB. So where is the extra 2TB I am missing? Please give me another 2TB drive or tell me why I cannot see it.
