When you download, before going to the External drive, the file must go though your HD, hence the message from your laptop.

16gb is extremely large for one file, the image must be comparable in size to a billboard on Piccadilly Circus. You could not view it all on a laptop screen.

Try to have the image reduced in size.

Good luck
