i try to dcc send a file of file size 4.29GB from mirc to mirc(with the latest version used). However , the dcc send box reports that the file in transfer is only 304MB in size. is that a bug?
I am using windows XP sp2 , ntfs format harddisc with 40GB size.
PS:the dcc send box did report the real size of the file when i transfer the file like 300MB.

yes, it's a bug.

now prepare for all the people who do not want to see this fixed since "mirc is not a file sharing app" (i guess that's why dcc was implemented?) and accuse you of warez'ing, stealing, etc.

*sighs in advance*

You forgot to mention the people that will point out that this has been reported before, and encourage the poster to use the search first.

In which version of mIRC does this happen?
