Can't copy large file to external USB MyBook
Posted on 2007-09-30
I have a 93 gig file on my hard drive that I want to copy to my new external USB MyBook hard drive. However, I can't copy it. There is 300 gig of empty space and I can copy smaller files (3 & 4 gig), but whenever I try to copy the larger 93 gig file, I get the error that says disk is full, would you like to use disk cleanup to make room.
I have run chkdsk on it, I have turned off the recycle bin, and I have defragged it. Any thoughts? I am using Win XP Home with 2 gig of RAM (I still have my VISTA OS sitting on a shelf; afraid to install it because I need this pc on a daily basis).
