Server 2008 R2 maximum NTFS volume size


  • I am looking at having to provide storage initially in the 60 TB range with a maximum potential for 200 TB.  The application software may only work with one volume (i.e. one drive letter).   For Server 2003 (current OS) spanned logical disks can't create a single volume larger than 64 TB (2 TB logical disks).  Can Server 2008 R2 create a spanned volume in the 200 TB range?  I am seeing conflicting NTFS version information.  It appears that Server 2003 and Server 2008 are the same NTFS versions for this area of spanned disks.  Any other articles or whitepapers I can refer to for a definitive answer?  Thanks in advance.

    Here is the TechNet article for Server 2003, I was trying to find a like reference for Server 2008 R1 or R2:
