I am trying to copy a repaired PST file which is 6.5GB on the server.

When I copy it to a pen drive it always ends up being 3.99GB.

I have even tried the excellent Unstoppable copier and get the same result

Thanks everybody.

Can't believe they still use FAT32 on 32GB drives!

Formatting to NTFS worked great. Thanks Kimputer.
