255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 91201 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Disk /dev/sdc doesn't contain a valid partition table

Disk /dev/sdd: 750.1 GB, 750156374016 bytes

/dev/md0p1               1       91201   732572001   fd  Linux raid autodetect
when I mount /dev/md0 it shows up as 9.7gbs.
Code:
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/md0              9.7G  2.6G  6.7G  28% /mnt

I have tried it also with having all 4 hard drives with a valid partition table. Please help. Thanks

Hi,

for software raid a minimum of 1 partition of type fd (Linux Auto RAID) is required. Non of your disk shows a partition.

Please post the out of
Code:
cat /proc/mdstat
.

sorry but I have to wait until Monday Eastern time to post output. I am unable to get to my network outside of work.
However like I said in my first post, I had also tried the raid with each of the 4 HD having 1 valid FD Linux auto raid. Should I only have 1 HD with a partition and the others with no partitions?

Are you using 32 or 64 bit Linux? I am not sure if 32 bit systems can handle file-systems that large.

Clearly /dev/md0 is showing 3 Tb; but what filesystem are you using? (ie ext3, xfs....) and how did you format it? (ie default parameters?)

I don't know what is going on I haven't touched this machine since I posted the issue but now all of a sudden I can mount /dev/md0 and it shows 2.7TB so I guess I fixed it?

The power went out on Monday and forced the machine to reboot, so maybe that is all it needed?

Probably! Ext3's maximum capacity depends on how it was formatted, but you should easily have 3 Tb. Guess you can mark it solved.
