I can't seem to find the reference to the limitation anywhere including in archives of the TC website, but I have a Win7 x64 system with a 4GB disk.

IIRC I had to use x64 because of a limitation with Windows x86 with 4gb drives .

At that point there was some limitation of TC that did not work with system encryption and the 4gb drives. I know it was not x64 as I run TC with system encryption on another system that is x64 with smaller drives. I have read through all the TC docs and cannot find what the limitation was.

Does anyone know what the limitation was, and if so is this something VeraCrypt will be addressing?

In the early days of TrueCrypt, there was a 2GB limitation for volumes but not it was overcome and the latest TrueCrypt version doesn't suffer from this.
VeraCrypt doesn't have any limitation on the disk size.
