Fatal error: File too large.
I am try to save a 20gig fat32 partition off of a failing hard drive.I have used dd_rescue to save an image of it.I would now like to repair the image file.
I am using Fedora Core4 on a 160gig drive and have put the image file in my root home and I am working with it there.I have used fsck.vfat and g-part to try and repair it.Both error out with the following.
[root@localhost ~]# fsck.vfat ryan2.img
dosfsck 2.10, 22 Sep 2003, FAT32, LFN
open ryan2.img:File too large
[root@localhost ~]# gpart -g ryan2.img
*** Fatal error: open(ryan2.img): File too large.
I have tried googling for examples of file to large.I cannot seem to find a situation similiar to mine.I assume it is one of two things.
1)Fedora Core4 can not handle large files
2)the image file is too damaged to fix.
Could anyone steer me in the right direction?
