Summary0000295: Resource file size comparison wrong when large volumes involved
DescriptionI 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 ReproduceGrab 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.
Additional InformationI think this issue may have something to do with how block sizes work on larger partitions, but not sure.
TagsNo tags attached.

Please I need more info.

May you tell me the size reported by Finder and by VisualDiffer?
For VisualDiffer may you tell me the size reported on small and big drives?
