So 24MB succeeds, but 32MB and all sizes above it fail?

But why does the error message say "Unable to append"?  Why "append"?

This is not the code that runs on Windows.  That one is a little ways
earlier in the body of copy-file:

  #ifdef WINDOWSNT
    if (!CopyFile (SDATA (encoded_file),
                   SDATA (encoded_newname),
                   FALSE))
      report_file_error ("Copying file", Fcons (file, Fcons (newname, Qnil)));
    /* CopyFile retains the timestamp by default.  */
    else if (NILP (keep_time))
      {
        EMACS_TIME now;
        DWORD attributes;
        char * filename;

        EMACS_GET_TIME (now);
        filename = SDATA (encoded_newname);

        /* Ensure file is writable while its modified time is set.  */
        attributes = GetFileAttributes (filename);
        SetFileAttributes (filename, attributes & ~FILE_ATTRIBUTE_READONLY);
        if (set_file_times (filename, now, now))
          {
            /* Restore original attributes.  */
            SetFileAttributes (filename, attributes);
            xsignal2 (Qfile_date_error,
                      build_string ("Cannot set file date"), newname);
          }
        /* Restore original attributes.  */
        SetFileAttributes (filename, attributes);
      }
  #else /* not WINDOWSNT */

The breaking of writes into smaller chunks should be in Windows
specific code, i.e. in w32.c:sys_write.  And that is very easy.
