Can someone perhaps confirm for me if creating a filesystem on a disk using
newfs_msdos limits any single partition size to 132GB?

Doing a newfs_msdos on a 200GB disk with only a single partition seems to
work fine, but I am unable to mount this partition. Doing a mount_msdos
returns "Invalid argument".

Is this a limit imposed by FAT32, or does this indicate a problem with
newfs_msdos or mount_msdos?


Kind regards,
