In the world of fancy storage devices having rapid fast transfer speeds have you ever wondered what can be a maximum size of a single file.

During the days of Windows 98, the had a 32FAT system which had a support only up to 4.5 GB/File which is like a so tiny size in these days.

So, later on, they started adopting the NTFS system where a file size can range up to 18billion GB which is mind-boggling but our OS minimizes this size as there is no use of giving that ability. In windows 10 the size of one file can range up to 14-15TB which is still so huge because we don't have a single hard drive of this size as of date.
