Experts,

     I have a large Magnum 64gb thumb drive that has nothing on it. However, when I try to copy a VM a lttle over 20gb  - the thumb drive returns an error that there is not enough space? There is plenty of space on the thumb drive!! What is happening?

Thanks, Missymadi

If you have the thumb drive formatted in fat32, it only allows you max filesizes of 4GB... For larger files you need ntfs if you are talking m$ OS, or some linux filesystem like ext3 for more standard OS's.

Yes, it's VMware\Linux\Oracle 11g configuration. So I will configure the thumbdrive to NTFS. What are the steps to do that? I tried this earlier but didn't see an option to switch to NTFS?

What is the host OS? If it is windows, open a cmd prompt and enter convert DriveLetter: /fs:ntfs

If it is another OS, you'll have to use a 3rd party utility like gparted to format it to ntfs.
