Long videos get cut into multiple smaller files

[ New ]

Some time between March and June my Hero 7 black started to take longer videos and cut them into smaller video files, with the largest video file being 11:48 exactly.  When I view the video on my GoPro it shows as one video but on the app, in Quik and on the SD card it's multiple .mp4 files.

 

Things I've tried:

Reformating the SD Card

Replacing the SD card

Factory Reset

Video recording with other settings (hyper smooth, resolution, frame rate)

 

taking a photo and timelaps seem to be working with out issue.

 

This is rather annoying in post since an hour long scuba dive is now 6 mp4 files that must be stiched together and then cut into clips for the final cut.
