Question about Western Digital My Book Essential 500GB External USB 2.0 - WDH1U5000N 500 GB Hard Drive
I am having a problem with file transfers. on files under 4 gb there is no problem, but when it is over 4 it tells me that there is not enough free disk space. when going to properties is says i still have over 200 gb of available space. both of the drives are 500 gb western digital my book. any potential solutions would be greatly appreciated.
It's the limitation of the FAT32 file system format of the drive. The only solution is to reformat the drive as NTFS.
