Summary

File size limit when copying to external hard drive

Description of the issue

I am trying to copy a 4.6 GB FM Pro Advanced 9.0v3 file to an external drive.  I have a Mac running 10.4.11. When the transfer gets to 4 GB, the copying stops and I get the message "Sorry, the operation could not be completed because an unexpected error occurred (Error Code -1309)" The only work around I know of is to split the DB and then recombine them.  As some of these are runtime versions, it's a pain. By the way, similar error occurs when trying to import more than 4 GB from the internal drive to an external drive. Is this an undocumented feature or is there some preference I need to set?
