YARA release candidate 1 for version 4.3.0 brings a Windows fix for the --skip-larger option.

IIRC, the --skip-larger option was introduced about a year ago, and allows one to specify a filesize to skip files. Files larger than the given size would no be scanned during a directory scan.

Unfortunately, this feature was not implemented in the Windows version of YARA, but now it is.
