    The problem is whether K is 1000 or 1024.

    If you multiply your 4.3 by 1024 a couple of times you will come out near the 4.5 number. It looks like Explorer is using K=1000, I think.

    Disk vendors like using K=1000 since it makes the storage capacity look bigger. This is why you see DVDs labelled as 4.7GB and the max size elsewhere as 4.3-4.4 GB. The problem is when you enter a size number just what K are they using.

    Take a look at the most recent tib file.... it is up to 5.847

    That is quite a bit past 4.3*1024

    It is possible you are looking at the effect of cluster size the on the disk in question?

    Sorry, I missed the real issue in your post. I would say that the split size is not being honored by TI for the differential. Regardless of what it reads it should make sure it doesn't write out a file bigger than the selected maxium. I don't use incr or differentials so I can't give you any help based on experience.
