The File is too Large for The Destination File System

File too Large

When we are trying to copy a file, there is a dialog box said that the file is too large, whereas we have much free disk space. This event can occur if we copy to FAT/FAT32 file system. FAT or FAT32 only accept a file not larger than 4GB, although there is much free disk space. The solution is
to convert it to NTFS, if the option is not available, try to copy all files, right click the drive, format, then choose NTFS in the file system.
If there is no NTFS, open command prompt (windows+R, type 'cmd', enter) then type 'format X: fs=ntfs' where X is the drive you want to format

don't forget to add comment :D
