Cannot transfer a 6gb file on a brand new 128 GB SanDisk Ultra USB type-c drive

Hi,

I just bought a 128 GB SanDisk Ultra USB type-c drive. I would like to create a Windows 10 installation usb flash drive. Downloaded the 6gb .iso file on an old windows 7 laptop. I get an error message saying the file is too large!

Could you please help?

New flash drives are formatted as exFAT which supports large GB files. What format is your drive?

It’s FAT32 out of the box

would you have any recommendations if I should format it in exFat or NTFS to make a Windows reinstall?

Definitely exFAT.
