Subject Re: [IB-Architect] Database files > 2GB.
Author Jason Chapman
I thought there was an actual limit in NT to 4GB anyway. I like 2GB because
it zips nicely onto a CD for very cheap long term archive.

I would be as happy to have a mechanism in IB that it just keeps on adding
secondary files as required, in the same way as it currently extends disk
usage as required.
e.g SET SECONDARY FILE path\filename nextNumber extension
This continues in the vain of low/no maintenance.

just my 2c
