Toucan 2.0.7 upgraded to 2.1.0 can not backup file larger than 1gb

Recently upgraded to T2.1.0
Win XP 64 would crash at approx 1Gb of compressed file
error in Toucan.exe, and 7za would keep running in the background until terminated

I have gone back to T2.0.7 and it is working fine

I backup my 4Gb Thumb drive weekly (PA, basic files, no large files)

If you need further information please let me know and I can install it again,

Thanks for providing these incredible programs !

Thanks

for the report, I shall take a look, do you see this Starting 7zip line before the crash? Or does it crash before 7zip starts to run?

More Detail

I would select backup
Update, 7z, password
Enter my archive password (x2)
Creating file list. . .
Backup begins, in Backup director Name.tmp file begins to grow
at aprox 1Gb Toucan.exe gets a fatal error and closes, 7za continues to run in the background.
Manually kill 7za (TaskManager) and Manually delete *.tmp file

Archive total size 1.4Gb (from 2.0.7 backup)

As far as I can tell, 7za is almost done when Toucan crashes
I let 7za run for (2) hours to see if it would complete the job with Toucan crashed and it did not (The normal backup takes less than 30 minutes from start to stop)

Thanks,

Mike
