Question about SanDisk Cruzer Micro 4GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive

2 Answers

Why can't I put a 7gb video on my 16gb Cruzer

I wanted to put a 7gb avi file on my empty "14gb of free space" 16gb cruzer and windows is telling me that there is not enough disk space on my cruzer. I even tried a 4gb avi and got the same error. I tried on a computer with Vista Ultimate and on another with Xp Pro and got the same results. Is there any way to fix this?

I think I know what your problem may be. Check to see how the drive is formatted. Drives formatted with FAT32 cannot transfer files 4GB or larger. Try reformatting the drive to NTFS.

1. Open My Computer
2. Right click on the drive
3. Select Format
4. Under “File System” change it from FAT32 to NTFS
5. Check quick format
6. Click start

I have not tried this yet but if that does not work try this:

1. Right click on My Computer and select Manage
2. Click on Storage
3. Click on Disk Management
4. In the right pane right click on the drive letter assigned to the San Cruz
5. Select format and choose NTFS

I hope this helps. Good luck!

Hey i have a 14.8gb SanDisk® Cruzer Glide™ USB Flash Drive, 16GB in im tryna drag a mp3 file to it in telling me The item can't be copied because there not enough free space


If you are using Windows 10, right-click on the Windows Start icon in the lower left. From the menu which appears, select File Explorer.

The window which appears should be centered on "This PC" on the left panel. On the right panel will be a section titled "Devices and Drives". This will show you the disk drives on your computer, their size and the free space left on each. You should be able to see the USB Cruzer drive as one of your devices, and should be able to see if there is, in fact, any free space on it.

The message you received sounds like a valid message. If you see that there is little free space on the drive, you can double-click on that drive in the File Explorer window to examine its contents to decide if there are one or more files you want to delete to make room for the file you are trying to copy to the drive.

The thing to check is to make sure you empty the recycle bin on the computer that you used to delete the file. Once you do this it should free up the space.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

How do I create more space on a sandisc 16GB USB


To create more space, you can delete the files that are on the drive. If you are not concerned with any of the files that are already on the drive, you can right click on it in My Computer and select format. From that window, check "quick format" and then hit format. That will completely wipe the drive and you should have most of the 16GB free.
