Unable to copy from NAS to external drive connected to the machine

Hello experts;

I am tryingt to figure out this and I have tried few things, i think i need your experties.

A user is copying files from a NAS on the network into an external drive connected to his machine.
The drive has over 800GBs, so far some of the files copy with no issues, and some come up with an err msg Access Denied, make sure the is enough space on the destination or the disk is not full...
The size of the files i tested were 4GBs, I can copy other folder and files that are this large, but not those 2 files, and now there is more of them..

I checked permissions on both drives and granted user full permissions
No change.

Please help.

How is the external drive formated? Is it FAT or NTFS?  If it is FAT it could be a problem because there is a 4GB file size limit.

That was just it.
Thank you Noduzz.

The drive is FAT32 and the file is 4.22BG.
