Is there a HOWTO for BSD which explains what is 'reasonable' overhead to work 
towards in constructing a 1.5Tb filestore on RAID?

A co-worker just complained the consumed space for 1.5tb looked to be 100Gb and
that seems a very high overhead. -no tunefs, no newfs options, no RAID tuning. Out
of the box.

Any simple guidance would be appreciated.
