I just created a new 1.5TB LUN on my SAN to be used for my file server. I'm adding it in vCenter right now, and before I choose a block size, I thought I'd pop on over and ask you fine folks if I have any real option on block size besides 8MB, since I want to make a single 1.5TB volume.

Is this my only choice? Would I be better off creating a small sized file or LUN?

While it's possible for me to have different drives on my server (Windows 2008 R2), I'd prefer to keep everything on one drive/ partition. Thanks to everyone for your help.
