BitTorrent client with FAT32 tweaks?

vbimport

#1

Does anyone know of a BitTorrent client that supports downloading files larger than 4GB to an FAT32 drive? I know the FAT32 spec doesn’t support larger files, but i’m thinking that a client could split up the file in a proprietary format and then reassmble the file once it is on an NTFS drive.

You can download over 4gig files on Fat32 as long it’s not an ISO. If it’s just a bunch of files that amount to over 4 gigs, then it’s fine. Just no images will work

You’re both correct- it’s DVD porn :slight_smile:

A limitation of FAT32 is that the maximum file size is 4Gb


#11

If you have a download partition formatted as fat32 and another NTFS partition that you don’t want to tie up, you might let the client download until it reaches 4 gig and errors out. Then cancel the download and move the partial file to the NTFS partition, restart the client and complete it. Shouldn’t take too long.

Or just convert the fat32 to NTFS?
