Max File Size in FTP Folder View

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by David Billigmeier, Feb 8, 2007.

  1. Is there any limitation on file sizes when viewing FTP sites in IE? I'm
    currently logged in and see a file that IE says is 3.99GB, however when
    logging in with a true FTP program (FTP Pro), it says 4.14GB. Any idea why?

    Thanks

    Hi David,
    Does the file size reported differ between the Directory view (in IE7) and
    the Windows Explorer view? My guess is that it depends on the FSOS on the
    server.

    I have heard of differences in the reported and actual size of hard disks in
    Windows Explorer (forgotten the reason why).

    I know its trivial, but there is also paralax errors when measuring file
    sizes in GB of +-.005GB. This may result in a vide variation in file size
    differences when compared to actual disk space, used disk space and free
    disk space on a directory where there is a wide variation in file sizes.
    (summation with the first differences). Remember computers can only add.
    Multiplication, division and subtraction are only variations of additions.

    Regards.

    Some HDD makers claim 1000B to be a KB instead of 1024B, when you get to GB
    size, that adds up to a considerable size difference.
