    Limitations will apply based on the filesystem used (aka no partition >128GB) but the drive can be as big as you like.

    You can certainly use bigger partition sizes as long as you pick the appropriate file system.

    Here is an overview: MorphOS file systems and partition sizes

    Legacy file systems are unlikely to ever see support for larger partition sizes as this might break compatibility.

    There has never been 128 GB limit for a _hard drive_, the limit is per partition with SFS. So, it's always been perfectly fine to make, for example, two 128 GB SFS partitions on a 256 GB drive. Or more with bigger drives, or it's fine to leave some space unused too if you like.

    My advice would be just to bite the bullet and go for two SFS partitions.

    Although a full size FFS partition on an SSD would also be tempting. Revalidation is an extreme pain on modern-sized hard drives, but it should be really quick on SSD. Just keep in mind that disk recovery tools wouldn't work on it...

    Edit: assuming the link that Andreas posted is right about FFS2. Has anyone ever tried huge partitions on it?
