You can't...

Basically the problem is follows:

When you get an object (such as an html page) it will choose a random
point on the disk (ie it could be in any one of the low level
directories, and in any of the ones further down). Since this is the case,
squid would have to check the size of each of the directories before
it wrote the object... which is a problem...

Use the raid0 stuff, it can handle any size disks (under linux)
