It says that the maximum data fork is two terabytes, and the maximum resource fork is 16MB. Are you asking what the data fork and resource fork are? If so, the data fork is the part of the file that holds all of the regular data. The resource fork holds special data (resources) that are used by the OS and applications. Because of external compatibility considerations, OS X developers are encouraged to use only the data fork.
