Has anyone sucessfully installed a USB 1 Terrabyte external hard drive in the 722 that showed the full 1 TB available to store programs?

if so, what specific hard drive(s)?

any problems that needed to be addressed.

I believe the manual states that 750 Gigabyte is the largest hard drive that can be recognized and used with the 722.

Believe not - 1 TB (read latest Charlie chats transcriptions here). That manual outdated long time ago.
Some ppl using 1.5 TB successfully; perhaps time to try 2 GB new disks.

I have a Cavalry 1TB working fine alongside 5 WD 750GB.

Note the drive makers number in decimal 1 TB = 10^9 bytes.
Computers use k M G and T for powers of 2^10 = 1024.
Thus a 750 GB is 697 GB for us and 1 TB is 930 GB.
It is not a formatting loss, just a terminology problem.

I have a Fantom GD1000EU 1TB USB 2.0 / eSATA Silver GreenDrive External Hard Drive and my 622 sees all of it.
