The <Size> value must be a non-negative integer indicating the database size, 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).

Important  You can update the <Size> element for documentation purposes, but doing this has no effect on the application database size. If you want to change the size of the application database, use the SQL Server database administration tools to do so. NSControl Update issues a warning if you attempt to update <Database> or any of its subordinate elements, and no changes will be applied to the database.
