sadly the filesize is 2GB

Notepad++ cannot open files that are larger than 2GB. The tool will simply display an error message informing you the file is too large to be opened.

What you can do is splitting this file in smaller parts. You can do that with a powershell task:

$upperBound = 100MB # calculated by Powershell
$ext = "log"
$rootName = "log_"
$destination = "F:\Apps\Visualcron\log\"

$reader = new-object System.IO.StreamReader("F:\Apps\FileZilla Server\Logs\fzs-2022-02-09.log")
$count = 1
$fileName = "{0}{1}{2}.{3}" -f ($destination, $rootName, $count, $ext)
while(($line = $reader.ReadLine()) -ne $null)
{
    Add-Content -path $fileName -value $line
    if((Get-ChildItem -path $fileName).Length -ge $upperBound)
    {
        ++$count
        $fileName = "{0}{1}{2}.{3}" -f ($destination,$rootName, $count, $ext)
    }
}
$reader.Close()


Now with the 100Mb files, you can open them with any text editor.
