That's an incredibly bad idea.

You're almost certainly running into a file size limit.  Check with your
system manager (or someone familiar with the platform you're running on)
to find out what the limits are and whether they can be increased.

Or follow the sage vaudeville advice:

        Patient: Doctor, it hurts when I go like this....
        Doctor:  Then don't go like that!
