I have WD Passport mini drive. When I try to copy 7 gig worth of data in one file to that drive, it gives me disk is full error. I have 75% free space. What may be an issue?

I think I figured it out. It's Fat and not NTFS. I'll reformat it and try again. Any other ideas?

Howdy:

Yep, you have to reformat to NTFS. FAT32 has a 4GB file size limitation.
