Subject [firebird-support] File size limit
Author Martin Dew
Hi all,

Very quick question, coming from using interbase for a long long time, then moving to firebird we are in the habit of splitting up our database files pre- 4gb filesystem limit.

So for example we would have a 10gb live DB split into fdb, fd2 and fd3 when we create or restore it to make sure that the old ntfs file systems did not overwrite the beginning of a single file database. All of our customers now use a minimum O/S of Advanced server 2000 which I believe the filesystem limit is now 16 EiB, so in theory as my sites all have a databases smaller than 20gb we should be able to make these into single file db's instead of the multi file because the O/S filesystem we are using has surpassed the old 4gb file size limit ?

Could someone in the 'know' confirm this for me ?
