Hi there smile

This has probably been discussed before, but I tried a search and couldn't find anything. I had 11 .mrc files loaded for a few weeks, always changing here and there a bit. I closed mIRC and added a few ;comments in some of the scripts and then ran mIRC again.

I noticed that all remotes had been unloaded, as well as the variables and userlist files. I found it wierd, although it didn't cause me any damage at all. Someone mentioned me that .mrc files have a 30k capacity and anything bigger than that would make it self erase. I'm not sure it's true, but all my files were 25k or less :P

Anyway.. I was wondering if it was some mIRC thing - overload of files maybe (although don't think so). mIRC.ini was not touched at any time and none of the remote files had any /unload command. Oh, and all the scripts were self-made, so I'm sure it wasn't the code that did it.

Thanks for any help,
Zyzzyx smile

Rest assured it isn't that 30k capacity cock and bull story, I've just loaded in a 44.75k file and it still operates smoothly.

-
* Loaded script 'C:\Documents and Settings\Andy\Desktop\mIRC\test.mrc'
-

test.mrc has a capacity of 44.75k
//load -rs test.mrc | //echo -a test.mrc has a capacity of $bytes($file(test.mrc),k) $+ k

i've had it happen to me before, so i just make a back up copy of my mirc.ini and remote.ini every time i make a major change just incase.

The thing about mirc only supporting a certian number of bytes was from pre-version 6, possibly before that even, where the mirc editor would only display a certian amount of data before cutting off the rest, so if you clicked OK, it would save to the file minus the data the editor cut off.

Ahh, I see. So it's a random thing more than something I did wrong smile

Thank you both for the help wink
Zyzzyx.

It's very random.
I have experienced it once, but my users have experienced it more often.

If I recall correctly that limit was 64k .. the same as using
the -n switch in the /writeini command to write to a file
even if larger than 64k.
