Is there any way to get OWB to download files larger that 4 Gig?

@Nuder_Try
If by OWB you mean Odyssey then it might be possible to create a MIME type in Odyssey prefs that would call a program like "wget", "curl" or "download" (from OS4Depot) to download files. I've never done it so I don't have details about exactly how that would be done.

@xenic

e.g.

Settings/Preferences/Contextual Menues

"Add"
Link
Label: "DL >4GB"
Action: "path-to/wget %l"

One might need to add some wget optional flags, didn't try it

I D/L the file with wget in a shell and extracted the archive with bunzip2.
My only problem was that bunzip2 deletes the archive after extracting the img file from it.

At least the original *n*x bunzip2 (really bzip2 with a symlink) supports the -k (keep) option to solve that, try if it works on the Amiga version too.

Otherwise make a backup copy before uncompressing.

Best regards,

Niels
