Our customers sometimes put the SolFS images on FAT drives.
Because of this, they get errors saying 'the drive is full' when the image crosses the 4GB filesize limit for FAT.

==> store the image in 2GB chunks? (image-001.img)
This is also what VMWare, ... does.

For Standard edition this can be easily done in your code using callback mode (implementing it would take 10-15 minutes). For Driver edition this would work as well, however callback mode in driver edition will slow down the operations. So we will consider automatic splitting of the images in the next version (not in Next.0 but maybe Next.1 or Next.5). Next stands for the next number, we have not decided it's value yet (it can be 2 or it can be 5 to bring numbering of Standard and Driver edition to the same value).

Sincerely yours
