  • size limit for hex compare?

    Using B.C. 3.0.7 I try to hex compare two files with the same name in two different folders, they have the same length, 372 MB (390.092.144 bytes). It shows only the content of one file, the other window is empty, and in the lower left corner it says error. I believe that it might be a size issue, since comparing two smaller files (128 MB) seems to work. Is it possible to check what the size limit is for hex and is it possible to increase it to at least 1 GB? Also, how can I check what is the error?

    Thank You

    How much memory does your computer have? I can successfully compare two files in a hex compare with a combined size of 1 GB, but I have 2 GB of ram in my system.

      My pc has 512 MB, but it is overloaded and the memory used is 1,5 GB! So, I understand it is an issue due low memory.

      Thank You again
