Fraps freezes and stops recording after a few minutes

Hi guys, First off thanks for any answers to this issues you may have.

Anyway so ive had fraps for about 2 years now (full version) and its never ever had an issuse before. However in the last couple of days when i got my friends hard drive due to my old one breaking. However before that fraps was working on that harddrive perfectly fine as well.

Now that ive tried recording Dark Souls 2 after a couple minutes (also ironically at 3.90 gigs each time but not set to split every 4 gigs) the gamefreezes for about 20 seconds then fraps stops recording and the game runs normal again.
My specs are as following
intel i7 960 3.2 ghz
AMD raedon hd 6870
12 gigs of ram

Anyway if there is any more needed info i will post it. Thanks for any help you can provide

Edit: forget to add that its with any game at all. Not just dark souls

    I've tried that however it doesn't not work. Fraps keeps freezing the game and then stopping the recording at the 3.9 gigabyte mark and I've tried updating graphics drivers which were up to date

    do you have enough HDD space.

    Yes I still have over 1 terabyte on a 2 terabyte drive
    Edit: i defragged my hard drive scanned for viruses and other stuff to clean my computer out. Fraps will still stop recording now at around 4.5-6 gigabytes of data.


    does the same occur for other games?
