I am running Basilisk II on Mac Mojave. Basilisk II 1.0, SDL2 port. I have a folder called "Shared" that is my Unix folder. I have been creating disk image files to image onto a SCSI2SD. I have made several of them with Disk Copy 6.1.2 to a 4GB virtual drive in Basilisk, then I copy it to the unix folder where I drag it to my OS X desktop to image to the SD card using dd. This has worked fine until today.

All of a sudden my Unix shared drive is limited to 1,023.9 MB and I can no longer drag image files larger than that to it. I think it used to be unlimited. Is there a way I can make it bigger?

Here is my prefs file:
disk /Volumes/MacBook/Apps/Macintosh Emulation Pack/Basilisk II/MacOS753
disk /Volumes/MacBook/Apps/Macintosh Emulation Pack/Basilisk II/2GBdrive
disk /Apps/Macintosh Emulation Pack/Basilisk II/4GBdrive

The Shared folder can handle an unlimited amount of data; individual files cannot be larger than 1GB though. And to handle older OS versions and HFS versions that can't address more than 4GB (2GB?), the virtual drive reports a "safe" drive size to the OS.

To get around this, you could try creating a virtual image that can hold these that's larger, copy your images to it, then close down BII and mount the image in the Finder to copy the files out to the host.

Ah, I understand now. I thought that was strange that I could copy unlimited amounts of data to that drive but a 1.8GB image would not copy.

Thanks for clarifying.
