How to Copy files to pen drive ?

Postby Gregory A. Chase » Mon Jul 07, 2014 7:25 am


I bought a pen drive from Kingston 16 GB...Whenever i copy a single file larger than 4 GB its not copying into my pen drive...
So can anyone explain why its not copying?...One of my friends told that, a single file of size 4 GB cannot be copied into any pen
drive..Is that true?
Please help..

Changed the file system from FAT to NTFS and it worked fine.
follow the steps given below to convert FAT to NTFS
1. Right click the drive name of pendrive
2. Select Format
3. File system type select NTFS.
If NTFS is not available (only FAT is available), then Right click at pen drive -> Click Properties -> Select Hardware tab & click properties -> Goto Policies Tab -> Select Optimise for Performance. Now you should have NTFS in Format menu.

Hope this will helps you
