comment mySQL 32bit vs 64bit
@david-w x64 isn't limited to 2TB drives either. That would be a limitation of either partitioning the drive with Master Boot Record (MBR) instead of GUID Partition Table, formatting with an old version of the FAT filesystem or a Windows app that directly accesses the drive and doesn't understand how to handle the native block size of a 3TB drive (e.g. Windows Backup Server.)

I understand that a 64-bit process will be able to address more memory, etc. but is that any reason why running a 32-bit process might be advantageous?
