In this case, the size limitation of UFS would apply.

	The UFS2 filesystem was introduced in 2003 as a
	replacement to the original UFS and provides 64 bit
	counters and offsets. This allows for files and
	filesystems to grow to 2^73 bytes (2^64 * 512) in
	size and hopefully be sufficient for quite a long
	time. UFS2 largely solved the storage size limits
	imposed by the filesystem. Unfortunately, many
	tools and storage mechanisms still use or assume
	32 bit values, often keeping FreeBSD limited to 2TB.
