Unable to copy from one drive to another

 

Tech Advise : 1

What is the file system on E:? It sounds like you are trying to copy a single 6 GB file? If this is the case and your E: is FAT32,

Then that is probably your problem. You can tell the file system by right-clicking each drive and choosing “properties”.

But the maximum file size of a FAT32 drive is 2 GB. So a 6 GB file won’t copy.

If you convert your FAT32 to NTFS it should work. Look at these websites

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/winxppro/maintain/convertfat.mspx

http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/convert.mspx?mfr=true

This will tell you about Format limitations: For FAT32 capabilities, see: http://www.ntfs.com/ntfs_vs_fat

Sorry I didn’t ask that ealier, I assumed NTFS and should not have. Just run convert on it and that will fix your problem  |
