663MB for 2^64 list. 2^79 is 32000x bigger than 2^64, so such a list would be.... big.

I think you'd be better off generating such a list live and testing them as they're generated. I'd rather spend 100x running time than 100x disk space! Of course, I've no idea how fast they are to generate vs read from disk, nor how many times you'll want to use the list- maybe you should find out before you buy 20TB of storage.
