trying to decrypt large file with gpg4win but keeps stalling out

I have a 22GB tgz archive to decrypt but it keeps timing out after 1.4GB. How do I change the setting to increase the time out threshhold? Is there a restart setting (like /z in robocopy) so that it picks up where it left off if the decryption gets interrupted?

I can ask for a smaller file, but don’t expect the request to be met quickly if at all.


Most things run into a problem when the file size exceeds 2 Gb. There are some programs out there that can handle larger ones but I would request they send smaller files < 2Gb.

I think the timeout was caused by network delays. I copied the encrypted file to a hard drive & was able to decrypt the local copy. Now I just have to unpack a 17GB archive - slow going.
