RawDisk or File system issues with large files

Postby Spectre660 » Mon Oct 30, 2017 3:40 pm

Having a problem with RawDisk is not writing large images properly to a USB drive .
uncompressed Image size is 7 GB .Images has 3 Partitions . Fat ,EXT4 and EXT2 .
Tried writing the .img from both a SFS/02 and a NGFS partition .

RawDisk was never intended for or tested with transfer sizes greater than 4 GB, so I can't even claim that it should work.

It might work if you split up the transfer into two smaller portions.

I could not completely D/L the linked file with Netsurf or Odyssey. I only get 2.4GB when the browsers either stop as if the entire file was downloaded or report a failure.

However, the attempts uncovered variable size problems in Netsurf and OS4 UnArc. They both show a negative number for the filesize; indicating an int32 variable being used for the file size.

Dont know about NetSurf, but UnArc does call XadMaster.library and both use uint32 file storage sizes.
They both need fixing to handle 64 bit.

Will recheck the download with Odyssey and check that the Odyssey download works by writing with another OS

Verified that download with Odyssey does not result in right file size .
So indeed more complications .
Transferring with Samba from another machine and OS seems to transfer the bzip compressed file ok to the AmigaOS 4.1FE computer .
