I’m trying to copy (right click copy and then paste) a backup folder located on a fully up to date Windows 10 laptop, to one of the Cruzer Glide 32GB or 64GB USB drives, into their Secure Access V3.0 vault. Everything gets copied except the >4GB files.
One of the files in the source folder is named .System, and it’s a protected operating system file from a Garmin nuvi. After I update the maps on my nuvi, I take a full copy of it directly from the nuvi (plugged into my Win10 laptop) and save it to my hard drive. It copies fine.
Then, when I try to copy the same file folder containing the .System file from the laptop to the 32 or 64 GB USB drive’s secure vault, it won’t copy it. As a test, I can manually copy it from the back up folder on the laptop, to the desktop on the laptop. I have changed the “Files and Folders” view options to “unhide” these files, and all other hidden system files.
To recap, this is what I have done, which doesn’t seem to copy the 6GB .System file. It copies everything else in the same folder. Just not the large file. My theory is it has something to do with FAT32 versus NTFS formatting of the USB drive, but I’m not sure.
The drives came in FAT32 format. I deleted all data on the target USB drive.
I then quick formatted the USB drive to NTFS, with max available space, and 4096 file size. Successful.
I then downloaded the V3.0 software from the Sandisk website. Copied it to the USB drive, and run as Administrator, and set the password, etc. for the Secure Access V3.0 software and vault. Successful.
I then plug in the USB drive, and open the vault, and right click and copy the folder on the Win10 laptop containing the >4GB files, then paste them into the vault in the USB drive.
It copies everything, except the oversized file.
Is there something in the Secure Access V3.0 vault or software that thinks it’s still in FAT32 format? If so, is there a fix for this issue? Is there some other flaw in my process steps? What am I missing or doing wrong?
Thanks for any info, suggestions, or comiseration.
