      Perhaps follow Xizor's suggestion http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/sky-h...tml#post474236 and build an image file using ExPvr (unlicensed) just containing the files you wish to keep.
      If the file is over 4GBs in size you will need to copy it to an NTFS partition in Windows as it will be too large for a FAT32 filesystem.

      Tried today. I get further with this technique, but I just get "Error copying" from XTVFS.

      Will try a few things and let you know, but this does not seem to be working right now.

      Re: Calling all Linux experts!

      I understand that you have built and are trying to get the application to run under windows. Although QT is a cross-platform application framework it maybe that some of the code is specific to Linux and relies on system calls that are either not present or that operate differently under Windows.

      Try building and running it under Linux. You don't have to install it to your hard drive. Xizor used Ubuntu installed on a memory stick, or you could build a disk image (in a file) and run it using Virtual Box.
