Increase available space on Unix volume

Post by elemenoh »

I'd like to be able to copy files >1GB to the UNIX shared folder, but it's constrained at 1,023MB. Is it possible to increase the available space shown on that volume?

There may be a limit to the size of individual files you can copy or a limit to the total size you can copy at the same time (I never tried), but otherwise there is no limit to the total size of files that can be copied from or to 'Unix'. It always indicates that 1,023.9 MB is available, no matter how many files are in the shared folder.

It seems to me to change this to something like 4096 (I can't remember whether 9.0.4 supports any files above size of 2048) should just involve changing a value in the source code prior to compiling. I think I've even done it in the past. I can't remember where the value is, but it's somewhere in the shared folder code.
