Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
Every time I try to copy over a movie it gives me an error saying it cannot copy there is not enough free disk space. Seeing as there is nothing on the drive (I just bought it) I find it hard to believe that a 8 Gb movie will not fit. I haven't had any trouble with any other file types regardless of size. Please Help!!!
To transfer files larger than 4GB to the drive, the harddrive must have an NTFS File system. Unfortunately, the FAT32 File system is not capable of handling a single file larger than 4GB (to be exact, one byte less than 4GB). Follow the steps below to format the harddrive with an NTFS File system:
Warning, all data on the harddrive will be lost! Please backup the data on the harddrive before proceeding.
