Anyway, I don't think you are going to have any problem to manage a
single partition of 2 TiB, even more if you plain to store plain data
(not a bootable system) there.


I have ext4 in one partition of 1.8 Tb or so. It takes about 40 min to chkfs... just something to bear in mind...

Its very convenient to have a large sack to toss the stuff, but it has its own set of drawbacks :)
