file edit size

is there a limit to how big of a file that i can edit through winscp? what are the limitations? - i have tried to open a 2gb, 1gb and now 512mb file through the internal editor and switching to notepad and am not having much luck (2gb and 1gb both got out of memory errors) 512mb is just hanging... anyone have any insights to this? winscp version is 5.5 on win7 box with 8 gb memory

Re: file edit size

The only explicit limit is about 2 GiB. In practice you get much less that this, depending on version of Windows, your available memory and structure of your file.

Generally would should not have any problems with files of few MiB up to tens of MiB.
