HP Z800 Hard Drive Maximum Capacity

Z800, WJ105EC#ABA
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello,

I recently purchased a refurbished Z800 workstation, Product #: WJ105EC#ABA.

I would like to fill my machine with hard drives but am not sure what the maximum capacity is for each drive with this particular model.

I have tried to find this information online but have found several different versions of the Quickspecs catalog

"DA - 13278" - all showing different maximum sizes of hard drives.
 
Can you please confirm what my maximum hard drive capacity is for drives using the RAID controller and non-RAID controlled drives.
 
Very much Appreciated!

Thanks for the info Josh!
The quickspecs catalog I was referring to is where you found that info. The problem is, different versions were published in different years (some in 2009,some in 2013, 2015, etc versions 6, 32 and 54 respectively). The problem is, they show 1.5 Tb, 2TB and up to 3TB max for 3.5" drives depending on the year the specific z800 was made. The real question is, for the specific model I have Product#: WJ105EC#ABA, which catalog is applicable?
Thanks again!

Hi again BLeethat,

 

Can I ask you the serial number of your Workstation? Maybe that will drop something in the search.

Kind Regards,
Josh
