Windows 7: USB Flash Drive Mistery

Windows 7 Ultimate X86
USB Flash Drive Mistery

Hi all,

I have a SanDisk Cruzer Blade *8Gb* flash drive.

I am able to load almost 8Gb of data on it, but when I try to transfer one particular file of 4.8Gb. Windows says there's no room available (flash drive is empty)

Any ideas???

Thanks and regards!!!

P.S.: Windows 7 Ultimate 32bits.

How do you have the USB drive formatted? If it is FAT32, I believe it has a 4 GB max file size. Try reformatting the drive as NTFS and remember to get any info off it first before you format.

I *NEVER* thought it was NTFS/FAT related.
Thank you so much.
