Question about Western Digital External USB 2.0 80 GB Hard Drive
Trying to copy a zip file from MY DOCUMENTS on the machine over to my western digital usb 2.0 external hard drive with 80gb of total space. I go to MY COMPUTER and the drive is recognized and able to access, it shows 63gb of space available. I SHOULD be able to move that file over without issue. I am backing up my outlook .pst files, and was able to do that on my last backup.
Cleared cache, cookies and did the disk cleanup and defragged the external hard drive....still getting issue.
Please advise. thanks.
I saw that my drive was FAT32 and my machine is NTFS, wasn't sure that could be the issue until you replied advising the 4gb restriction. Does not make sense i transferd 4gb before, but none the less I reformatted the drive to NTFS and my file transfered just fine.
Thank you for your input.
