File Archiving Problems

Bill Giles


I had started to archive some of my video files to a Western Digital Passport external hard drive when I started getting "File too large for destination drive" messages. There was plenty of free space on the drive, so I was puzzled at the message. After looking around for a while and checking the drive for errors, I realized that it was formatted FAT32. I re formatted NTFS and I don't seem to have the problem anymore. Apparently the individual files were too large for FAT32. Some were 6 to 7 GB, but it didn't occur to me that the file system on the Passport couldn't accept such large files.
