Which file system is better to use for larg files exeeding 2.5 gigs ??
I have been trying to store my iso's on my server as a backup and cannot
store a file larger than 2 gigs, I am using etc2, will ext3 do it
or can any one tell me what will work
Ext2/3 fully support large files. It's really likely the application
you're using does not. some of the ftpd's aren't compiled with large
file support. Apache didn't used to be either, not sure about the
current state for apache honestly or specific ftpd's but that's what i'd
lay my money on.
I remember at some point Samba also assumed the 2GB filesystem limit, to
keep compatibility with the Win9x clients (when they were still more
popular). You had do do something like:
mount -t smbfs -o username=USER,password=PASS,lfs //server/share /mountpoint
I don't know if this still applies.
