You'll have to look at the filesystem and OS combination.

- FAT32: you might have a limit of 4GB per single file DB. It's
unlimited with multiple DB files.

- NTFS: the size is limited by the volume size(i.e.: if the volume
size is 120GB, then your DB single file can grow up to 120GB). And,
it's also unlimited when using multiple DB files.
