I am trying to copy a .ISO file of a DVD from my desktop to my external hard drive. The file is 6.85gb. I have 10.1gb left on C:\\ and 365gb on my external hard drive. When I try to move it it says there is not enough space to copy the file. Help? Thanks.

tl;dr, i'm trying to copy a file and it says i don't have space but i do.

yeah, check what filesystem the external drive is using. you may have to split it, this can be done with winRAR or HJSplit.

EDIT: Format the external drive to NTFS or something

File is too big for the file system used by the external drive.

QFT

the external drive is probably formatted in FAT - FAT can't handle files longer than 4GB., I have the same problem with mine, but new, shiny, 320GB drive for my MacBook is ordered so no more
You're using UG classic, congratulations.
