The <GrowthIncrement> value must be either the increment size or a percentage. If you choose to indicate the increment size, the value must be a non-negative integer, with an optional suffix to indicate the unit of measure: kilobyte (KB), megabyte (MB), gigabyte (GB), or terabyte (TB). If the suffix is not specified, the default unit of measure is megabytes (MB). If you specify a percentage, the database will grow by that percentage of the current database size if it runs out of room and needs to expand.
