The file system is likely the culprit for this. If you've formatted the USB stick with FAT32, the largest SINGLE file will be about 4GB. You can place as many smaller files as you want to fill the stick completely (in excess of 4GB), but once you approach 4GB for a single file - it will crash.

Format with NTFS instead. No 4GB limit is placed on files in this file system. A nice chart listing the differences between file systems can be found here. The forth row "Max File Size" shows the data you're asking about. NTFS supports 16TB (terrabytes are 1000 times larger than gigabytes) while FAT32 is limited to a "paltry" 4GB. Both FAT32 and NTFS are supported by Windows XP and newer OSes.

I hope this helps - please rate my reply - thanks!

I have a .pst file that is 5 GB which I am trying to copy to a sandisk flash drive cruzer 8 GB. I keep on getting an error message stating the the file is to big for the destination file system. What...


Two possibilities:

1. you already have more than 3GB of files on the SANDISK.
So, delete some files, or "burn" them to a CD/DVD disk,
so that you have at least 5 GB of "free" space available.

2. the "file-system" (the way that the "table-of-contents" is laid-out on the SANDISK) limits the size of a single file to 2GB.
The "file-system" on your 'C:' drive does *NOT* have that identical limitation (it does have a "maximum-file-size", but it is MUCH larger).

Open Outlook, and "compress" all the folders.
Perhaps, the PST file will shrink to less than 4.7 GB.
If it does, then you can "burn" that file onto one DVD-writable disk.

Trying to drag and drop a movie file to my flash drive but cant drop the movie file


It is one of the disadvantages if the file is large enough that the cache or temp file from your computer can't able to handle. Much better to highlight the file/s and have to either copy or cut then paste it to the destination folder or drive.

I just purchased an 8GB USB 2.0 flash drive from SanDisk Cruzer. I plugged it in, it recognized it then opened to documents what do i do next?


You use it like a floppy disk, you can copy files to and from your computer to the flash drive,then take the flash drive out and the put into another computer to share, ie. to download and copy files to from other computers such as a friend's computer. The files can be anything, music, photos etc.

Loss of space on junk drive


With it plugged in, open the Recycle Bin on your Desktop and see if all your deleted files are in there.... if they are, empty the Recycle Bin & all your space will be freed up.

If that is not the problem, reformat the Cruzer and all your space should be available again.

If not, your Cruzer is defective.
