    Does anyone have a file manager that will show files bigger than 4 GB?
    Both windows file manager and Powerdesk 4-5-6 will only show up to the
    4 gb size. There has to be something out there?? I have xp pro SP2 installed.

    What it might be is that Windows XP with Service Pack 1 has a file limit of 4 GB.

    You have to install Service Pack 2 to work with files bigger than 4 GB.

    This may be a limit of FAT32. See if your HD is so formatted, and change it to NTFS.
