SnapShot Limit on vSphere 6.0

Is there a limit on the total number of HDs in the Virtual Machine when i do a SnapShot in vSphere 6. ie. more than one HD.
Also is there any limitation on the size of the SnapShot on the second disk eg. If I have a VM with a second HD of  10 TB LUN - would it be possible.

No limits

Max size of virtual machine disk is 62TB

So as long as snapshot size and virtual disk size does not exceed 62TB max limit!

Yes, but you would have to modify the location of the working snapshot folder.

Do not use snapshots as backups.

Do not keep a VM running on a snapshot for long than two days.
