image.dd file cannot go beyond 4GB in size

#1 Post by ppchu9999 » 09 Feb 2016, 02:48

trying to run testdisk , on a FAT32 partition, it cuts me off beyond 4GB in size..

not sure if there is a way to tell it to create multiple image dd files , each less than 4GB.

Currently, it's not possible to create splited image.dd files
You have to use a destination that supports files bigger than 4 GB: NTFS, exFAT, ext2/3/4...
