OK, I've got a Windows 2012 R2 server (VM Guest in VMware 5.1) that i need to copy (partition) approx. 3.5 TB from one disk to another. (File based copy won't do it, millions upon millions of 1kb-2kb files, etc.)


1) I was looking at using Gparted because it's free. Although I'm not sure if it'll handle disks/partitions that large and if so, will I have to change the BIOS to be EUFI (if even possible) in VMware 5.1. Worst case, we can upgrade to VMware 5.5.

2) Let's say it's a 2 GB Fibre channel disk, anyone have any sort of time estimates?
