Windows 7: Can't copy Outlook archive file

Can't copy Outlook archive file

I'm about to wipe an employees PC and I need to get the archive.pst off the PC first. The Archive file is 6.1GB in size but when I try to copy it to my 32G Flash Drive it says that the "archive.pst is too large for the destination file system." I've done this many times before with larger archive files onto this Flash and never had an issue The PC is running in Safe mode, but I don't think that'd have any effect on the copy. Any ideas?

I had the flash formatted for FAT32 and not NTFS. Whoops.

Hi there .. I thought that might be the problem .. But you had stated that you had used it before with larger files . Mistakes are easy made though :)
