are you sure you have 6.5 sp3? i think that such version does not exist
anyway, for file type device the Volume Default Capacity is a hard limit to the amount of data that can be written
to the device.
In order to avoid accidentally filling a file system, set this value to restrict the size
of the file type device. For example, if a Volume Default Capacity of 100 MB is set
for a file type device, then the device will be marked full when the capacity of 100
MB is reached. This is true for any type of file system.

Note: The advanced file type device ignores the Volume Default Capacity value to allow
dynamic expansion of disk space.

so if you want to limit the size you might want to go from aft to ft device only.

let me know if that helped
