Hello,

Thank you very much for your answer.

The KB MB or GB characters will not be used in metadata but only in the 
file used to initialize/update metadata.
The document is not clear about this point, I will modify it.

I will change the namespace for the "virtualRoot" property.

Thank you.

Best Regards,

Thomas
