When processing some pcap files mfile will extract an HTML page from web traffic but will then proceed to continue writing data to the drive as fast as possible. As a result the drive will quickly run out of space and no other carving will be possible.

I shall attempt to find a sample pcap to illustrate this but the data I'm working on is confidential and so this may not be possible. Apologies.
