Subject: Not obeying max size, aborting after creating huge files

By: David E. Cloud

It's been working fine until this past weekend. We usually get 3 files of approx. 4GB each. Now it gives up after the file reaches about 8GB (8,386,664 KB). I've tried deleting the job file and creating a new one, even asking for a smaller size. From the log file, here are the last good and next 2 bad runs...

Can you send me the zipjob.dat file and information about the program version and type of operating system (Windows XP, 2000, 98). How much free space do you have on the C drive. What is happening in the time from the program starts and you get the error (about 5 hours?). The detailed log file for one or more of the failed job could also give some hint so if you could include this also it would be fine.

More information: This seems to be related to the size of some files. Recently several users began creating Microsoft Outlook archive files (archive.pst), and some of them are larger than 500MB. When I remove all files larger than about 250MB the program runs correctly. I don't know the exact number or size of files that cause the problem to occur. Hope this helps. Dave.
