  1. Hello,
    I am trying to move all my files from my computer to my new external hard drive, but whenever I try and move a file over 4 GB in size i get this error message...
    "The file is too large for the destination file system"... anyone know how I can get around this so I can move those files over?

    Get ahold of some software that will break up the file into chunks.
