Hi, yes 2003 SP2 removed the 64k transfer limitation, but what is your backup device and software capable of?

I am assuming that you are talking about back transfer rates...

If you are using something like backupexec then you can look here on how to do it, however if you use another type of software then you will need to do some digging to see if they have it listed.  Some B/U software manufacturers will not support more than 64k or allow changes.

What do you mean, formating a file system with 256k block size because you plan on storing large files or you have a large filesystem?
