The file 'filename' is too large for the destination file system....??? Sandisk Flash Drive 128 Gigabytes

I just a bought a 128 Gigabyte USB 3.0 flash drive because I wanted to transfer 3 files that are clearly below the 128 Gigabyte threshold.

What is the problem?

How do I resolve it asap?

Is the drive used? If the drive’s format is exFAT there is no limit on file size, which is how they are manufactured. If the drive’s format is FAT then the max file size is 4 GB

Thanks for sharing ed_p,

I was able to find a solution. The flashdrive was formatted as FAT, I just needed to reformat it.

Always like to hear happy endings. Thanks for the update Wes.

You’re welcome!
