Windows 2000 does not copy large files
On my notebook with 2000 I created a backup file to put on my external disk.
However, this error came: "Backup can not copy: Not enough space on the disk. Delete files to gain additional space."
The file is 8.2 GB but on the external disk 28GB are still free.
I did something with my Xp computer is trying an even larger file to copy and it worked. So is the record, I do not blame.
Thanks in advance
Re: Windows 2000 does not copy large files
The problem that many encounter now is one of the limits of FAT32 that's being run into: file size. The original FAT (FAT12) had a maximum file size of 32MB, FAT16 has a maximum file size of 2GB, and despite the much larger hard disk size supported by FAT32, the maximum file size only doubled to 4GB.
This is largely why a movie file larger than 4GB in size might not be able to be copied to a hard disk with lots of space. The hard disk is probably formatted using FAT32. There is no quick solution short of converting the hard disk to the NTFS file system.
