That’s a target and not a maximum, and it can go over that even on LCS with 
wide partitions

In general, the practical limit is hundreds of gigabytes (I’ve seen 500-600 a 
lot, but not more than a terabyte very often). You’ll typically hit other 
issues and need to tune some params before you hit hard caps (unless you know 
what you’re doing).
