Subject RE: [ib-support] FIB and filesize
Author Wilson, Fred
Jason, I'm slightly confused (but for me that's a common state of mind ;) )
about your e-mail. Are you saying that BT4.0 has a max file size (limited by
the max file open size) of only 180GB and W2K maybe something more ??

Best regards,

+2c NT & W2K have a concurrent file size open limit of 180GB (NT) and a
something larger for 2K (I haven't been able to test on 2K yet).
