not enough disk space!?

  1. help.

    whilst transferring files from the lappy to a 1T external HD i get this message:


    what's going on? as you can see at the bottom right, i have ample room for storage.

    prior to this i had transferred some avi, divx....as well as pics without any issues.

    perplexed :(

    thanks in advance.
  2. I cant see the pic (filtered @ work, cbf getting around it) but check the file system format. FAT32 has limits on individual file sizes, and you can convert to NTFS while retaining data. Done it a million times.
  3. Yep you can't transfer a file anything larger than 4 gig onto a fat 32 drive.
    I would say that your drive is fat 32 format rather than the ntfs format.
  4. it is fat32 - picture shows that
  5. an obvious problem

    if the disk is FAT, then it's already full :LOL:
  6. Oh dear god that was a horrible joke
  7. Just don't ask him about soup jokes.
