Hi, im trying to transfer a 8gb file from an external hard drive to a usb pen drive that says (when i go to it's properties) that there is 23gb out of it's max 30gb free and yet when i try to copy and paste iim getting the message that the destination drive is full? I have deleted lots of data from it to create the free space but i dont know why this message is appearing! Please can anyone help?
Ps- i have now taken the pen drive out and attempted to copy and paste a single 4.35gb file from one external hard drive to another 1tb external hard drive (obviously via my laptop) and im getting the same message but the 1tb external hard drive has 435gb spare??
To convert your drives to NTFS: Right click on 'my computer' and select 'manage' From the computer management window, expand storage and select 'disk management.' Using the 'file system' column of the upper pane of this window, you can easily check what file system each of your logical drives is using. Make a note of this information. Now open a command prompt window by going to 'start\run' and typing 'cmd' To convert a disk to NTFS, type 'convert (drive letter): /fs:ntfs' So for example, if you were going to convert your C: drive, you would type 'Convert c: /fs:ntfs' at the prompt.
