Re: All Large (~3GB+) Files Download Corrupt

said by Raphion:

This might be a really dumb question, but you are using a file system that supports file sizes larger than 4GB? Given that none of your OS testing worked, I'm guessing the file system is an unlikely culprit, but it's all i could think of.

YES ALL file systems now days support file sizes upto 17 billion gigabytes (Exfat) in size

So unless he is running windows 98se he is fine

Well, does your car at least turn into something else? Sometimes I turn it into a trashcan. Hmm...

Not so, I have seen XP systems running FAT32 (4GB max file size) Also, removable storage such as USB thumb drives and SD cards are nearly always FAT32.
