get a filesystem larger than a terabyte your minimum blocksize has to be
larger than 512 bytes anyway.>>

     Unfortunately many of those same UNIX systems using 4K blocks format
the disc drive in 512 byte logical blocks. That is part of the problem that
NSIC would like to get people to move away from.
