Subject: File too big to backup

By: Stephen Bennett

21/02-2005 21:32

The log file indicates a file was skipped because it was too big (about 1.4GB). Is there a work around for this? I assumed this was the products' stong point - to break up files into 650BM chunks.

The log file is below.

Please select Split large files.
This option enable the splitting of files up to 4.2 GB over a number of smaller zip files.

When working with large files it is important to select a temporary directory on a disk with at least the same amount of free space as the compressed file size of the biggest file, if the option split large files are selected you need at least the the amount of free space as the compressed files size of the biggest file plus the amount of the max zip size selected.
