That's kinda strange, i really believe i have tried to copy files larger than 4GB to the HDD before on leopard, but maybe am confused on that.
i repaired the permissions on all the HDDs even the enternal one.
and i actually tried a document file of maybe 60KBs and the same thing on both partitions.
i think the good news is that i checked on the backup of TimeMachine and yep it backedup files "weooh" i tried and created files on my own and checked the back up and its there.
the weired thing is when i try to copy those same file my self ( Drag n Drop or Copy n Paste) its not working on either partition.
i would really appreciate a solution where i wont have to restore to leopard and re-install lion, i would be happy to provide who you with more detail if you might be able to help
If that's true that i can't copy files over 4 GB to a fat partition, then there is something wrong with the whole computer system on earth..
But i realy don't think so i also am pretty sure i've done alot of times under snow leopard..
I do suffer from the same problem with the same error message, thats why i also need help with the issue.
Thanks in advance
If that's true that i can't copy files over 4 GB to a fat partition, then there is something wrong with the whole computer system on earth.
Here is an article written in 2003 that explains the confusion folks are having here:
The solution? Don't use any Fat. Loose the Fat. Get healthy with HFS.
I have no confusion over any of this, i mentioned in my post above that i cant even copy a 60KBs txt file to either of the partitions (MAC OS EXTENDED and the FAT32) and also the 7GB file cant be copied to the MAC OS EXTENDED. so its not just large files.
HOWEVER time machine seems to backup files fine.
The Flash drive or hard disk must should be formatted as MS-DOS (FAT)
if you want to copy big file size Run Virtual Machine and run operating system like windows xp or windows 7 or any other operating systme in Wmware then drag file from mac to windows OS flash drive or hard disk or any other removeable media
you can copy it easily any big size no problem
