>From wikipedia
The actual amount of disk
space<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_data_storage>consumed by
the file depends on the file
system <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_system>. The maximum file size a
file system supports depends on the number of
bits<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bit>reserved to store size
information and the total size of the file system

more of it you can read on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_size
