    So this old 04/2006 (almost 2 year old) post says no >2TB volumes
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=127325
    but maybe in future versions.

    Here we are in the future. Now the FAQ says:
    Concerning RAID arrays, it also says:
    So does that mean that currently, if you're running a OS with >2TB volume support (like XP/Vista 64-bit, 32-bit/64-bit 2.6 kernel Linux, or 32-bit/64-bit Windows Server 2003) and a RAID card with 64-bit LBA addressing (like a 3Ware 9xxx) that you can manipulate volumes greater than 2TB on RAID arrays greater than 2TB for the supported file systems (e.g. NTFS, EXT3, ReiserFS).

    Or is the FAQ not mentioning the still existent 2TB volume/disk limit, or for that matter any limits in terms of GPT vs MBR disk support? (The best I can find is this post -- https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=197857 -- which although unofficial suggests no >2TB/GPT disk support. And, this (year old) post with another official "not now, maybe in future versions".)

    Are we in the future yet?
