Looks like there is a typo in the answer’s additional commentary. “256 TB”? TB needs to be MB. Otherwise I need to scrape up a lot more money to have that many Terra-bytes worth of storage space on my media server :^)
Thank you for all of your work to provide all of this for everyone!
The maximum storage size for Windows XP Media Center really is 256 terabytes!
