    Is there a 2GB max file size on a NAS200 running the latest official firmware? I'm getting errors trying to put anything bigger than 2GB onto mine via SMB from a centos 4 server (which I'm hoping to retire from media server duties, leaving that the the NAS).

    I've running 2*1TB Samsung drives in RAID1 on EXT2 (with UPS to minimise the probability of an unscheduled outage :))

    Thanks!

    Hi, it might be the firmware. Apparently ext2 limits file size to at least 2TB according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ext2. Have you tried to copy a large file from a different PC?

    Looks like it's some odd combination of the cp and the networking environment. If I copy a 2.6GB file from a windows box directly, it goes without an issue.

    Bizarre - will try to delve deeper (but because it's soooooo slow to copy anything, I think I'll live with what I have :))

    Perhaps it isn't the firmware.

    Most definitely no such limitations with the V3.4R71 firmware. I put multiple 22GB windows backup files (.bkf) on my nas200 just fine.
