Everything else seems to clone fine at the moment, confidence to moving to Git is a problem because of this on the team. I'm looking to figure out a way to make sure we are getting binary matched clones when doing so. We sure would appreciate any help you can give us.  

As I mentioned, I think Git LFS is a red herring here.  There are no
patterns in .gitattributes, so the fact that it's installed is
irrelevant, since it's not being used.

To summarize what I said on the Git LFS issue tracker, I think you've
seeing a problem with Git on Windows where it doesn't always handle
files larger than 4 GiB properly.  My guess is that if you created the
repository in WSL or on a Linux box, things would work, provided you
used a 64-bit binary.  Can you try doing that and seeing if cloning to
another Linux-based directory works properly for you in that case?
