Hello all,

I would like to create a 20 GB on an externa HD that has still 1.5 TB of free space.


I keep getting the mssage:  Can't creat (name sparse image)  File too big.


Can anybody help me out? Thanks !

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)

FAT32 allows a maximum file size of 4 GB. You may be able to create the disk image as a sparsebundle, rather than a sparseimage.
