Hi,

Maximum Sizes on NTFS Volumes depends on cluster size.

Maximum volume and partition sizes start at 2 terabytes (TB) and range

upward. For example, a dynamic disk formatted with a standard allocation

unit size (4 KB) can have partitions of 16 TB minus 4 KB.

Unider WinXP

In theory, the maximum NTFS volume size is 264 clusters minus 1 cluster.

However, the maximum NTFS volume size as implemented in Windows XP

Professional is 232 clusters minus 1 cluster. For example, using 64-KB

clusters, the maximum NTFS volume size is 256 terabytes minus 64 KB. Using

the default cluster size of 4 KB, the maximum NTFS volume size is 16

terabytes minus 4 KB.
