There is no theortical limit for the size of the pool, barring factors such as the controller you're using, OS support for the drives, your wallet size, cost of electricity. 

 

As long as the drives show up in the OS, then you should be able to pool them.   And StableBit DrivePool doesn't use the drive letters, so you can remove those, if you want.  

We recommend mounting them to drive paths, to help keep things sane, and accessible.

however, if you just want to remove the drive letters, be warned that Windows can have issues with volumes that aren't mounted.  There is a simple fix for that, if you do run into it:

Personally, I'm running 20+ drives in a pool that is 150~ TBs.
