SubjectRe: moving affs + RDB partition support to staging?
From
Date
BTW - anybody who uses 512 byte blocks with an Amiga file system is a famn dool.

If memory serves the RDBs think in blocks rather than bytes so it should work up
to 2 gigablocks whatever your block size is. 512 blocks is 2199023255552 bytes.
But that wastes just a WHOLE LOT of disk in block maps. Go up to 4096 or 8192.
The latter is 35 TB.
