Cannot Transfer Files Larger Than 2Gb or 4Gb on TeraStation

This is caused by the protocol used to mount the shares.

  • On a Mac machine, this means it has been mounted as an Appletalk share.
    The limitation for Appletalk cannot be changed. However, OS X users can mount it as a SMB (Windows) share and it wont have this restriction.
    It will lose some Mac attributes, such as folder icons in the transfer.
  • On a Linux machine, this means that you will need to mount using the lfs switch to enable large file support.
    For example: "smbmount //server/share /mnt/server -o lfs".
  • On a Windows 9x (95, 98, ME) machine, this is a limit of the Fat16 or Fat32 filesystem that they see the share as.
    This cannot be changed.
