I formated it and in the properties it does say it's 7.6GB (~8GB). However, when I try to copy into it a 4.5GB file, it says: "The disk in the destination drive is full. Insert a new disk to continue".
I reformatted and restarted the PC, and tried different files but got the same result.
Doing a bit of research, I learned that a disk can be optimized "for performance" or "for quick removal". By default USB drives are optimized "for quick removal" which limits them to FAT filesystems. In order to have the choice for NTFS format:
- right click the USB drive
- go to the "Hardware" tab
- find the disk in the list and double click it
- go to the "Policies" tab
- select "Optimize for performance"
Now you should be able to format as NTFS and copy files larger than 4gb!
It did not work for me. So I reformatted the card to FAT32 and split the file with the file splitter provided with Glary Utilities program (free). Use the User Define Option about 100MB each and add Self-joining functionality. When doing so you also get a .exe file that will allow you to rejoin the file. Copy these files one at a time onto your card. Now all you have to do is to rejoin the files on the card.
