Check your drive format and make sure it's not FAT32. If it is, you need to change it to NTFS, which can be done by:
1. Click Start and Run.
2. Enter CMD and click OK. (This will open a command prompt window.}
3. In the command window, enter CONVERT /? and the Return key. (This will show you the syntax for the command.)
4. If you wanted to convert drive E, you would enter:
CONVERT E: /FS:NTFS
Under NTFS, the filesize limit is the physical size of the drive, although some programs will still limit the filesizes, because they assume they're writing to a FAT formatted drive. Then you have to upgrade or use other software.
