VMG8825-T50 USB shows 2097151 MB capacity

I'm having some trouble setting up USB file sharing properly.. I have an external 4TB hard drive, which supports usb 3.0. In windows this partition shows up as follows:

In the Zyxel control panel however, the capacity is limited to 2097151 MB! Some searching tells me this is a common problem but none of the causes listed online seem to match my situation.

I've ruled out:
  • MBR - The disk I want to use shows up as GPT on disk management
  • Partition size limits - In windows it works fine as shown above
Has anyone run into similar problems? Any tips? I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance and kind regards from the Netherlands.

    From your description, it seems the it only shows max 2TB.
    Have you tried it with a smaller hard drive like 1TB and see if it shows correct size?

    Hi @Hummel ,

    Thanks for your reply. I have previously used a 4GB usb drive which showed up correctly.

    I will try today to actually fill up 4TB (somehow) and see if all files show up anyway. I doubt it though.
