Hi gopi2008,

The file size (8.5GB) is huge. Your pen drive might not allow you to copy this file if this drive might have been formatted using an older file system such as FAT or FAT32. In order to copy this file to the pen drive you need to format your pen drive using NTFS. In order to do this, first backup all the data then go to My Computer and then right click the pen drive icon, select format and then select NTFS from the dropdown box. Once the format completes, try copying your file again, it should copy to the destination now.

You can read more about these file systems from the below link:
