|0000295: Resource file size comparison wrong when large volumes involved
|I copied some files with resource forks from a small volume (< 100 GB) to a large volume (> 3 TB) on another hard disk. I did a file size comparison check with resource fork option selected and Visual Differ showed the resource sizes to differ. Both partitions are the usual HFS Plus Journalled.
|Steps To Reproduce
|Grab a 4 TB or larger harddrive. Set it up with one partition, Mac format, or at least with one partition over 3 TB in size. Copy file with a resource fork inside a folder over to large partition. Do the comparison as described above. If I do the same test with comparison between two locations on smaller partitions, the issue does not occur.
|I think this issue may have something to do with how block sizes work on larger partitions, but not sure.
