Trying things out... chunk size advice?

I've been testing the waters here, and so far am quite impressed! I'm planning on backing up around 30TB with Duplicacy (to start, at least... things always grow), and was wondering what your advice was on chunk size. What should my min, average, and max be? Most of the data will be pretty static (photos, videos, archived files, etc.), but there will be a bit that might change frequently (say 10-100 GB, probably) from regularly used files.

Thanks, Matt

I think the default setting should be fine. Generally you use a smaller chunk size for better deduplication, and a larger one if you care less about deduplication and want to reduce the number of chunks stored in the storage (which however is never an issue with most cloud storages I guess).
