SubjectRe: Q: current limit of ext2fs ?
   From: Herbert Rosmanith <>

what is the current limit for a single ext2fs partition ? is it possible
to have a single 4G partition ?

The theoretical limit is 4TB (terrabytes); in practice, there may be
some signed/unsigned bugs at 2TB (terrabyytes), or 2048GB. I've
personally seen a 54GB e2fsck partition made, using a raid array at the
last Berlin Linux conference.

(Alan promised me a GIF of the photograph he took of me and my laptop,
which was hooked up via a PCMCIA SCSI card to a raid array, where we
created a 54 GB filesystem using mke2fs, and then mounted using the
Linux kernel and dropped some files onto said filesystem; Alan, did that
photo ever come out? I want it for my ext2fs web page. :-)
