I believe that those limits, as documented, are out of date.  I know the cygwin rsync had such a limit (but I thought it was 2 or 4G), but that has since been resolved if using the latest distribution from cygwin.  I currently have one 68G file in one of my backups performed using SMB.  Hmm, thinking about it I probably should validate that file.

so what do we use to back up large files on windows machines?  the documentation implies that samba has a 4 gig limit, and that rsync might have an 8 gig limit.  then what...?

thanks!
