On Cores running on Windows Server 2016 or Windows 10, if you attempt to create a repository larger than 16 TB with Write caching policy On (default and recommended setting), it fails. If you try to create a repository larger than 16 TB with Write caching policy Off, it is successful.
For the failed attempt you find an error in AppRecovery Logs similar too:
ERROR 2017-03-01T11:46:54  - ServiceHost.InMemoryHosting.InMemoryServiceHost ()
