I've tried to create a large 5TB file system using both reiserfs and ext3 and both have failed.

I end up with only a 1.5TB file system. Does anyone know why this doesn't work, what to do to fix it?

I fixed a bug in mke2fs that had this result over a year ago, so a
recent e2fsprogs should fix it.

Failing that, there's a workaround: use "mke2fs -b 4096" to prevent
mke2fs from trying to work out the device size in units of 1k blocks.
Counting in 4k blocks prevents a 32-bit overflow.

Thanks,

I finally got it formated using the GPT label with parted. I formatted it reiserfs, it takes a few seconds to mount but seems to work fine and shows up at full size.
