Maximum size of a cloud drive is 10TB?

Question

Hey all, I am creating a drive using an SFTP server as a backup device, but I am hitting an issue. I have 16TB of space on the server, but the maximum size of drive I seem to be able to create is 10TB. I can't select any bigger option from the drop-down menu, and when I manually resize the drive to be larger, it just seems to ignore it. 

Is this a limitation of CloudDrive, of the connection or of the server? 

I guess I could just create a couple of drives and use DrivePool to fit them together, but I wanted to check before I start copying files over.

You have to type in 16tb

Ahh, I see. I did try manually increasing the size of the drive by typing in the number, but the size in the main program screen did not change. When I quit out of CloudDrive and re-opened it, the drive size was updated to the larger size. 

 

So, looks like that is a UI bug, not a file system or other one.

Oh yeah forgot about that part. I had that same issue last night. I am new to all of this . Maybe you can help me out. How do you access your cloud drive files if your computer crashes. Or what if I want to move the drive to another computer. I got the detaching down but the recover process I am kind of confused about.
