This is very important to me - are you saying that in FB 1.52 using NTFS or
Linux, that the single file limit is in fact ENORMOUS! Like 64TB in size?
That would be good news!

2GB limit does hols for interbase ans some variants of FB 1.0 only. FB
1.5 does use 64Bit Fileaccess which does allow larger files.

> What is the single file size limit on FAT32, NTFS Linux, etc?

FAT32 is limited to 2 GB, for NTFS and Linux this limit is removed in
current versions - both do have old versions with that limitation.
