Description

I was attempting to backup Ubuntu Desktop 9.04 64-bit to a folder on another disk formatted as NTFS (Windows XP Professional 64-bit) The #1 file is created, just below 2GB, but it is reported as Failure. Retry doesn't help so I had to cancel.

Backup to Linux disk was successful so I assume there is a problem with NTFS only.

I used the latest released version.

I guess you are reaching a limit somewhere. Normaly the 2 GB limit is linked to FAT32: http://www.ntfs.com/ntfs_vs_fat.htm and http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc938937.aspx

Are you sure of the format of the partition ? How do you mount that FS under Linux ?

This bug is unrelated to mondo BTW. Check whether you can make a larger file with:

dd if=/dev/zero of=/my-ntfs/testfile bs=1M count=3000
