The sensible drives go up to 16 TB? Even that is going to take ages for a scandisk.

I think even 16 TB is way too large, shingles or not. It would still
take nearly 18 hours.

What would be a type of HDD that a system could handle practically now?
I think perhaps the upper limit is 8 TB? That would take nearly 9 hours
to fill. 6 TB would take 6.5 hours, 4 TB would take 4.5 hours.
