Ubuntu – How to copy a file larger than 4GB to a USB flash drive


I am trying to copy a 6GB file to a USB flash drive but it won't copy.

Best Answer

This is due to FAT32 limitation. Files larger than 4GB cannot be stored on a FAT32 volume. Formatting the flash drive as exFAT or NTFS will resolve this issue.

WARNING: Back up your data. Formatting will delete all the data on your device.
