  • Help! File Size Larger than 4GB!

    Hey all,

    I was extracting a DVD I "borrowed" from the internet, and wihen I was extracting with WinRAR, it gave me a message that Fat32 can't support files larger than 4GB. It suggested I try NTFS. I am running XP Pro SP2. I really do not want torun NTFS because my Windows installs are sometimes buggy and that means that Windows won't load sometimes and it's a real hassle to backup an NTFS drive. Does anyone have a way around this? THe way the file is made is there are about 100 55MB RAR files and then when I open the first one in WinRAR, there is a large IMG file. I know that once I can extract that large file, I will use WinISO to extract the IMG. The only proble is that I can't extract the original rar files.

    ANy Ideas?

    Thanks,

    Rafster

      Use NTFS.

      Seriously, there is no problem with NTFS, it is a MUCH better file system than Fat, and any problems you might encounter would be PEBKAC.

        Not much choice here, sorry. FAT32 has a 4GB file limit and 2TB partition limit...

        However there are some tools that may help you.

        http://www.tugzip.com/

        "Support for the Zip64 algorithm which allows you to create ZIP archives larger than 4GB."

        This baby is an extractor also so maybe, just maybe it can manage such archives.

        Good luck

            Buy a second HDD and format that one for NTFS. I am sure from all the money you have saved from stealing movies off the internet instead of paying for them will allow you to spend a measy $60 to $100 for a huge HDD that you can use.

                The size of the drive is not a problem, I have a 200GB, 160GB, 80GB, and 2 60GB.

                I just don't like NTFS. For some reason, it is buggy on my computer.

                Peace,
