I'm slightly confused.

As I understood it, the size of a disc_copies Mnesia table was only
limited by the system's available RAM, and one didn't need to worry
about the size of the on-disk representation of the data.

Did I misunderstand this, or were you referring to DETS-backed
disc_only_copies tables?
