Video File Size - Incorrect RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an issue with a wmv file.

    I am trying to copy of wmv file which is purportedly 17.2 GB in the properties.  I have tried on 2 separate flash drives with available memory of 29GB & 37GB. 

    I receive an error message stating the file is too large for the destination file system.

    How is this possible?

    I have also compressed the file, and after compression is 16.6 GB in properties.

  • How are the flash drives formatted? If they are FAT32 they won't support files over 2GB.

  • Flash drive is currently FAT32?

    1. Right click on Flash drive

    2. Click format

    3. Change the type to NTFS

    Now recheck the issue.
