comment Does Windows Server 2012 R2 OEM require different install media?
I touched up your question to make it less of a licensing issue, but do be aware that an OEM license is non transferable, which has some problematic implications for virtualization.

@ChrisPowell Sorry, I misspoke (mistyped). I meant to say cluster, not stripe. You need to reformat the array, except this time, select 8 KB (or more, if you want) for your cluster size.

WSB won't write a 16 TiB file for ~1 TiB of data to backup, so it's not that. The actual source of the problem is the NTFS implementational limit of 2^32 -1 clusters, combined with the a 4KB cluster size, which has been the default for a very long time.

@AndrewS It's used as a measure of the original data size, before data deduplication and snapshotting and such. And the file size limit for NTFS on Server 2012 is 256TiB, not 16 TiB.

@AndrewS No, that's a message from Windows Server Backup. "Protected" seems to be the new buzzword in backups these days. Even my Avamar (enterprise d2d backup product) dashboard tells me it has X TB of data "protected" for us.
