If an add-on image is created with a very large (>= 4  Gigabyte) file inside it, the large file is corrupted when restored.


For add-on images, the allocated size for a file is truncated to a 32-bit number, although the file size is set correctly (64-bit). When Windows accesses the file, it is truncating the wrongly allocated size to zero.
