Windows – How to copy a large file (11GB) file to a thumb drive

fat32windows

Can you please tell me how I can copy a large file (11GB) to a thumb drive (16GB)?

I am copying from Ubuntu and I get a message saying that the file is too large when it reaches 4GB.

I want a Windows machine to be able to read that file on the thumb drive after the copy.

Format the thumb drive using NTFS. FAT32 limits you to 4GB.

If you need assistance with formating, follow the instructions in this link: http://www.ntfs.com/quest22.htm
