I have used this for many years and generally find it very stable - no problems opening ASCII text docs up to 1GB plus.
However I have just had to generate a 3GB file (8m+ records) and was surprised to get a "disk full" message when I attempted to open it in TextPad.
System is Vista64 SP2 Bussiness, 4GB RAM, 6.5GB spare on c: drive, and several hundred GB spare on the drive that the file is located on.
I know that TP creates a temp file on c:drive when it opens a file, but I thought 6.5GB would have been sufficient for that?
1. a TP limit (32bit application)?
2. a Disk resource limit?
3. Or is it the really insufficient RAM being reported as "disk full"?
I created a shortened version of the file (~3m records, 1.4GB). That opens in TP without problem
Any help much appreciated.
