There are people who use 8t partitions on i386. All you need to do is tweak some settings to allow fsck to assign enough memory for a file system check. This is possible because I think the file system is access block wise. With a block size of 4k an 8TB FS only requires an address space of 2g. I don't know anything about the UFS internals, so I cannot give you the real numbers, but they should that something aught to be technically possible. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
