"Fsck on multi-terabyte file systems today can easily take 2 days, and in the future it will take even longer!"
This is a bit imprecise, fsck of a given size file systems will be faster in the future that it is today, because the disks will have better bandwidth and smaller seek time.
But I agree that fsck will be generally longer because the average file system size will be greater and the bandwidth and seek time won't scale accordingly.
