>From my experience mucking around with UFS1/UFS2 this is what I
learned. On UFS2 the largest filesystem you can have is 2TB. I tried
with a 2.2TB and it wouldn't handle it.
I read somewhere that with UFS2 you have 2^(32-1) 1K-blocks and UFS1
supports 2^(31-1) 1K blocks per filesystem. That is essentially a 2TB
max file system for UFS2 and a 1TB filesystem for UFS1.
