    I am having troubel moving large files from a HDD to a 64TB thumb drive. Didn't we over come the 4GB wall with Windows 7? I have a friend with Windows 7 and he doesn't have this issue. Is there something I have disabled or something on my system?


    Thanks,

    Windows 7 with all the updates and 8GB of ram.

    Depends on how the thumb drive is formatted, if it's Fat32 then you are limited to 4gb but if you use NTFS you really have no limit but the size of the drive itself.
