I've got a similiar problem here. For MacOSX, I've to compile AFS myself -
changing the free-space-constant before that. Otherwise, our beloved
"Finder" refuses to copy largish data sets (which I have to move around a
lot) into AFS.

However, another fs subcommand might not be necessary - just increasing the
reported free space to 2TiB-1Block  should be sufficient since most volumes'
quota is considerably smaller than that.

Are there any programs known to break when reported free space is that high?
