Intel Rapid Storage Technology (RST) drivers and Support for Disk Drives Beyond 2.2 TeraBytes (TB)

The Intel drivers found in retail releases of Windows 7 have a 2.2TB limitation.
Rather than cut off the capacity at 2.2TB, the limitation expresses itself as the remainder above 2.2TB.
In other words, the driver causes the Windows operating system to see a 3TB drive as 746.52 GiB (or 800GB).
