How come 8 wont fit onto 11?

I've got a 32gb memstick/flashdrive with 11.6gb free!

I'm trying to move a concert video to that memstick that is 7.92gb to the drive and I'm getting and error message the video is too big!

I have screen shots check attachement

I defragged the memstick and still no luck!

any suggestions?

That would be because of the file size limits of FAT32 which your flash drive is formatted in.

The limit on file size for FAT32 is 4GB so that's why you are getting the too large warning.

The only way to overcome that is to format it NTFS but you need to make sure to move what you want to keep off of it first.
