Depends on the underlying filesystem.  For all of the above ext3 is the
default.  According to
<http://www.dataclinic.co.uk/linux-file-system-native.htm>
4TB is the limit for ext3.  Some other filesystems like XFS can
support (much) more.  Google ext2/3[1], XFS, ReiserFS(4), JFS.

Fat32 (used for compatibility with Windows) supports 2GB (-1kB ?)

[1] AFAIAA identical except for journalling.
