file exceeds filesystem size limit

1 post in this topic

This error has one of two causes:

1> You are saving a torrent with a single file over 4GB to a FAT32 hard drive.

2> You are saving a torrent with a single file over 4GB to an apple network attached storage device such as their Time Capsule product.

In either case, the solution is saving to a hard drive that does not report itself as FAT32, either by converting the hard drive, or saving to a different location.

With the issues with the Apple products, there is no workaround that will allow you to save to them, as Apple's network sharing code is mis-reporting the capabilities of the drive to networked computers.

If you are on Windows (2000/XP/Vista/7) you can convert the offending drive from FAT32 to NTFS by following Microsoft's conversion procedure on the drive.
