RE: Maximum File Size on Ext2/3


Sorry if I'm missing something but I didn't find any of that information
in the ext2.txt.  Is there two versions of the inode structure because
the latest code I have only has one inode structure with a i_size field
of 32 bits.  Where is this 64 bit field that describes the size of the
file?  I understand with the direct, indirect, d-indirect and t-indirect
blocks that you can have much more than 4 gigs allocated but the i_size
field seems to limit the file size.

Thanks again, Jason

Please see linux/Documentation/filesystems/ext2.txt

There is a 64-bit file size.  Limit is 2TB of allocated blocks.
