I have a 1 TB external HDD, 2 partitions a 174.5GB MAC OS EXTENDED used as a backup and an 825.23 MS-DOS(FAT32) for everything else. before i upgraded to LION it works fine. after LION i copy a 800MB movie file to either of the 2 partitions it shows the file being copied and the gray file icon is there  but after the process is complete the file isnt there and the HDD size doesnt change. while when i try to copy a 7GB file to either of the partitions this message appeares (The item “123.mkv” can’t be copied because it is too large for the volume's format).


am using a macbook 13" dual core 2.4ghz 4gb ram. ---


i tried my brother's HDD and i faced the same issues. however on his MBK its fine.


i honestly don't want to try and restore before LION and do the process again coz i would have to download LION again, and i also can't transfer the files on the external HDD coz its too big and i don't have anywhere to put them.


if anyone has a solution please do post. otherwise i would have to re-do 30hrs woth of work again coz its not backed up
