I'm capturing a 32GB USB; it runs to 100%. When I assume the 'Post Image Verification' is about to begin I get a crash dialog. The .bin file is 32,094,814,720 bytes.
Are there limits? Are there any secret builds other than v1.1 build 1008 that may address something like this? I'm going to reboot and attempt again as well.

There is no known problem that we are aware of that would cause this.
Starting imageUSB with the "-d" command line argument will save a debug log. The filename for the logfile is "imageUSB.log" and can be found in the same directory as the executable.
If you can send this log in, we will see if there is any useful information.
Experiencing crashes during image Creation from 8GB UFD
I am also experiencing crashes after image creation indicates 100% with a FAT32 formatted 8 GB flash drive.
This has occurred on two different computers (32-bit Windows 7sp1 and 32-bit Windows XP sp3).
I experimented with a 1 GB flash drive and was able to successfully complete the process.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
The following is a truncated excerpt from my imageUSB.log file:

Unfortunately, the logs are not helpful in determining the cause. We have not run into this problem in house.
We will do some more testing in house. Can you elaborate on the brand/model of the USB flash drive you are using. We will see if we have something similar to try to recreate the problem.
A possibility is that the destination drive where the image file is being saved is also a FAT32 filesystem. The max file size on a fat 32 filesystem is 4GB.
App Crash Upon Image Verification
Has anyone determined the cause and solution to this issue? I am experiencing it too

As noted above there is a limit of 4GB per file on the FAT file system. (using NTFS solves this)
I'm having exactly the same issue with version 1.1 Build 1009 of ImageUSB with a 16gb Pretec i-Disk Bulletproof flash drive (http://www.pretec.com/products/usb-flash-drives/item/usb-flash-drives/bulletproof).
The logfile generated doesn't offer much help I'm afraid. It reads (minus the hundreds of lines containing the "Debug: Thread (4140) Creating...0.1%" stuff:

....and then a crash window appears that simply says:
"imageUSB has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."
NOTE: This is with the 'Post Image Verification' option off.
This is the corresponding information from the Event Log:

...which doesn't appear to give much away. I've tried this on two different laptops, although both running 64-bit Windows 7. I've also tried with a test USB key (256MB) which worked successfully.
We haven't been able to reproduce this error on our test USB Flash Drives. I sent you a PM regarding testing a debug build, get back to me if you wouldn't mind testing.

But yes, I have received it. I have a hunch on what the issue might be. It seems that either your USB Flash Drive or the Windows API (for some particular drives) is not correctly reporting the end of the drive. So imageUSB reading beyond what the reported size of the drive is.
I will try to get you another build today and if all goes well, we'll release it on our site next week.
