File too large for transfer to flash drive

Last Modified: 2020-03-07
I am running Windows 10.  I have a travel 64GB flash drive that I use for presenting videos on the road.  The flash drive is formatted exFAT, but when I try to transfer a 5.1GB MP4 file to the flash drive I get the following message:

File too large error
I thought exFAT could handle the larger files.  Please advise.
