Max Partition Size with uaeHF.device ?

Hi,

apologies if this has been asked before - and I just can't find it.

So I have this nice 128GB CF-card. It has been set up with my Amiga and features two 50GB partitions. Both have been formatted on my Amiga using HDInstTools sans any special actions, just clicked 'format'.

Now I use it on my PC. I start WinUAE as admin. The CF is added as Harddrive using 'UAE'. The two partitions show up on WB.
Copying stuff over using DirMasterII, however, it uses only a few GB. Similar with DOSControl which tells me that the partition is only 785 MB.

Anything I can do about this? Anyone know this issue?

WinUAE uses a 030 (fastest), 2/8 MB Chip/Fast. No other HD. I boot from a slightly expanded WB3.1-Disk.

Thanks,
McT

Most programs calculate size/free space of partition using 32-bit arithmetic: returned size is always either modulo 4G (0-4G, then it wraps around to zero again) or -2G to 2G or even something totally wrong.

OS3.9 supports >4G properly. (But it can't fix any 3rd party applications)

Ok, thanks a lot. I'll try a different file manager.

Anyone have an appropriate FileManager that can handle such big partitions?

Never mind, I found one - FileMaster 3.2 originally by Toni Wilen
