I have two PC networked together, a win98 and a XP.

I tried to backup the win98 (6G HDD) to the XP, which has a 60G HDD after an hour and about 5 G of progress I get a message that there's not enough disk space. I should have plenty of space.

Is there a limit on file size or transfer size, or....?

I'm using fat32 on the target winXP.

How big a deal is switching to NTFS?

Can I just backup in smaller chunks??? Or just bakup critical stuff.


Thanks

Converting over isnt a big deal. No data loss....but you cant go back unless you buy a program such as Partition Magic.


and yes, you should have no problems if you back up files smaller than 4GB at a time.
