I wasn't able to find this documented anywhere in a truly convincing
fashion, but the answer seems to be a maximum of about 4 terabytes,
that is, four thousand gigabytes (!). Not likely to be a concern for
me in the immediate future. But then again, I recall a time not too
long ago when an 80 Mb hard drive seemed infinite!
No figures were available on the *recommended* size; I understand this
number is usually decided by the dimensions of your backup media. Maybe
a few gigabytes (?).
