Hyper-V CSV disk size

Is there a recommended disk size for cluster shared volumes?

I have worked mainly with Xenserver and ESX in the past. I know there are recommendations for VMFS volume size (~500 GB) to achieve best performance.
I did some searching and and haven't found much. It seems like there is nothing specific.

Thanks in advanced...

    I've not seen any recommended disk sizes for CSV, other than

    A Witness disk of 1GB and NTFS default cluster size (4K) basic disk.

    What is important for CSV storage disks is the correct unit allocation sizes, for large CSV storage disks.

    e.g. CSV Storage disk 1TB NTFS 64K cluster size.

    NTFS does support up to 16TB, but I wouldn't create above 3TB.
