Hi All,

I am trying to make a file in Erlang with 1-GB size.
This is a command:

{ok,Io} = file:open(FName,[write,raw,binary]),
             BitSize= 1000000000 * 8 ,
             Reply = file:write (Io,<< 0 : BitSize >> ),

And the problem would be:
=ERROR REPORT==== 24-Nov-2011::13:53:24 ===
Error in process <0.37.0> with exit value:

I should mention that the operating system is windows!

Please help me out with this matter,
