I want to use Debian 4.0 with Raid 10.  How much storage will it recognize?  We have 3 TB altogether but with the Raid 10, it will need to be able to see 1.5 TB.  Can it handle this?

It will depend on the filesystem you choose.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ext3
Size limits

ext3 has a maximum size for both individual files and the entire filesystem. For the filesystem as a whole that limit is 2311 blocks. Both limits are dependent on the block size of the filesystem; the following chart summarizes the limits[15]:
Block size       Max file size       Max filesystem size
1KiB       16GiB       <2TiB
2KiB       256GiB       <4TiB
4KiB       2TiB       <8TiB
8KiB[limits 1]       2TiB       <16TiB

I'm running a 1.8 TB RAID 10 on two Dell Powervault 220 External Array cases no problem with Debian.
