Backup to disk hitting NTFS 4GB limit
Posted on 2001-09-08
I thought I'd be clever and backup 2kPro a lot faster than tape to a spare hard drive I had laying around. The trick is, I've run up against the NTFS 4GB single file limit and the idiot-proof backup routine that MS tosses in with 2kPro as a freebie refuses to move on to another file name after that limit. Specifically, it says: "Cannot swap fixed media".
No kidding... Is there a way around this, or am I out of luck without getting some third party backup program, in which case I'll just continue with the slow tapes. Points to whoever feels like digging through MS's website for proof it can't be done or someone who has figured a way to trick the thing.
Thanks for any help,
