      Forum Upgrades   01/29/2016

      Hi Folks,   As you may have noticed if you're a regular visitor to our forums, things look a little different as our forums have just undergone a significant upgrade and now have a fresh new look!  We're aware that there are one or two little "niggles" with the upgrade that still need ironing out, but we're on the case, and normal service will be resumed shortly!   In the meantime, if you've got a problem with a BitTorrent product, but are unable to post about it in the forums, you can also find support via the following links: BitTorrent Client Help Center BitTorrent Sync Help Center BitTorrent Bundle Help Center BitTorrent Bleep Help Center   Thank you for your patience as we work to improve your forum experience! UPDATE: 1st Feb - We're currently investigating issues with notifications - earlier issues that may have been preventing some users from logging in have now been resolved. UPDATE: 2nd Feb - Looking for the BitTorrent Sync forums? They've moved to http://forum.getsync.com (you can use your existing BitTorrent forum credentials to login)

file exceeds filesystem size limit

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.
