Surely the limit is 2.1 Gb? A direct quote from my battered copy of Inside Mac - Files p16

"Actually, a file on an HFS volume can be as large as 2 GB ($7FFFFFFF bytes). Most volumes are not large enough to hold a file of that size. An HFS volume currently can be as large as 2 GB."

That was correct for HFS...

The comment about volume size shows the manuals age! I don't believe this limit changed with HFS+.

You would be wrong! That was one (of the many) changes that was incorporated into HFS+ - hence my comment about the OS requirements.
