Timelapse Video Problems

I've been playing with the timelapse video feature on my Hero5 Session recently.


Before last weeks firmware update I had no problem doing 2+ hours of timelapse at a frame every 2 seconds...   The GoPro produced 1 video file and it worked perfectly.


This week I've tried a couple of 7-8 hr timelapses (using an external USB battery plugged in).   1 frame every 5 seconds.   The one I did today produced 5 video files running between 1 second and 1 minute 19 seconds.


While it captures everything, it makes it difficult when importing into the Quik App as it puts the files in the wrong order.


It's driving me nuts.  Any ideas?

Not exactly sure what's going on, but do keep in mind that the SD card is formatted as FAT which has a max of 2GB per file.

The largest file it created is under 300mb, so it's not that.
