I am afraid this is not true. Linux ext2/ext3 can support 16GB-64TB
files. You can get more information at here:

I was trying to merge a 1.9GB index1 with a 800MB index2 under my Linux
ext3 with LFS support, but it failed at "writing word hash", and left me a
2.6GB prop.temp. Seem like it was some kind of overflow.
Writing index entries ...
Writing word text: Complete
Writing word hash: ...err: Ran out of memory (could not allocate
99880956 more bytes)!

Sorry if this is a stupid question, how to convert it to UTF-8?
