Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.


This is a known bug and has been discussed on the list previously:

We've created several patches for commercial customers and are still
reviewing the results.  We'll put the best one into a future build of
2.5.04, or you can build from source on the CVSNT_BRANCH_2_5_03 branch
in the repository.

Note: keeping such large files in CVSNT on 32 bit windows is not
recommended - even with any patch from us.  For commercial customers we
recommend that if you are storing  files over 500Mb that you use a 64
bit server and operating system.  We currently support 64 bit SuSE
Enterprise Linux 9, 64 bit Solaris 9 and 64 bit PA-RISC HPUX 11i (with
provisional support for 64 Bit Itanium on HPUX 11.23).
