Files too large for SFTP upload ??

Post by rungeit »

Hello, I'am using Backup4all Professional. I want to backup a directory with a view *.7z archives inside. The destination is a SFTP-Server. When there is a file bigger than 2 GB, then Backup4all split the archive in files like that: NAME001.7z NAME002.7z
In the properties I found the optin: Allow file splitting when spanning

When I activate this option, then the archives will be splited. When I turn off the option, then there appear the meessage: "The file XY is larger than 2 GB. It can not be uploaded to the SFP server."

But why? I do not want to allow file splitting.

If your SFTP server supports uploading files larger than 2 GB, please follow these steps:
1. Open Backup Properties->SFTP server->Edit configuration
2. In the "Advanced" section, increase the maximum file size.
3. Press OK then press Save.
4. Run again the backup.

If you have any other questions, please contact us.
