Not that I'm aware of. The easiest solution would probably be to fall
back to timecaf or timehash for at least some groups and a decent chunk of
that disk space.
Note that you'll have other problems with that much disk space on-line and
a system without large file support, namely that your history file will
almost certainly go over 2GB.
