    Outlook Backup says file too large


    Outlook 2007. Go to backup to new thumbdrive (14GB). System says file too large - it's only 6.25 GB, and the file name is the old date, note 24.5.1. See attached.
    Note: it's been a while and just glad you are all still there.

    Thumb drives come formatted as Fat32 by default. There is a maximum individual file size limit in Fat32 of 4GB.

    Reformat the drive as exFat or NTFS, neither of which have file size limits, and you should be OK.

    There is a file size limit it's just so high we haven't even reached it yet. It's certainly higher than his thumb drive.
