Backup Exec 8.6-"Backup to disk" failes after 4,x GB

Discussion in 'Backup Software' started by Uwe Spielhagen, Oct 15, 2003.

  1. Hallo everybody,
    Has anyone experiences with veritas Backup Exec "backup to disk"?
    We bought some 120GB FireWire/USB2.0 external IOmega disks to do a
    backup to disk and afterwards take the whole thing from this disk to tape.
    The Problem is, that the B-T-D stops after it wrote a 4,1 GB File into
    the Backupfolder saying "insuffisant space on disk".
    The disk is still accessable through Windows Explorer.
    The Machine is running W2K Prof. SP4.
    Is there a problem with the filesize in windows?
    Can one tell BE to create backup files not greater than 2 GB?

  2. I found out: one must use NTFS for Files bigger than 4 Gig.
    Now It's running
