RE: binary file size limit? (4.2GB retry - success)

That's definitely not true, at least on NTFS. If you move it to a different
partition, then it has to duplicate the data (if you know of a filesystem
out there that doesn't, lemme know), but anywhere on the partition is cheap.

FAT32 may be a different story, but who would use FAT32?

Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe that on MSDOS and MS Windows the
'mv' operation is only cheap when the file stays in the same directory
(i.e. it's actually a 'rename'). When the file moves to another
directory it is first copied to the new location and then the source
gets deleted.
