Apple 2 gig file limit / 32 character limitation on LinkStation
The limitation is not due to the format of the Linkstation (EXT3).
There is a limitation with the Appletalk protocol on the Linkstation that files can be no larger than 2 GB with a maximum file/foldername length of 32 characters.
Since OS 10.2, Apple has supported the SMB protocol for file transfers.
- Mount by using 'Connect to Server' and entering:
"smb://<Linkstationname>/<sharename>" ...where <Linkstationname> is the network name or IP address and <sharename> is the name of the share.
