What filesystem are you planning to use, I am hoping for XFS in such a large volume.

Hello again,

Been an interesting day.

I'm attempting to use parted to create a partition on a 28TB volume  
which consists of 16x2TB drives configuired in a Raid 5 + spare, so  
total unformatted size is 28TB to the OS..

However upon entering parted, and making a gpt label, print reports  
back as follows;

Model: Areca ARC-1680-VOL#000 (scsi)
Disk /dev/sdc: 2199GB
Sector Size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: gpt

Why is the disk reporting ~2TB?

Should I be using another partitioning tool for such a large volume?
