Outside of a hardware issue, it is still possible to see that message which I'm maintained for years needs an upgrade to not just say what it says not but share why it happened.
"(directory or filename) up to 255 characters long" is another limit. If you copy really long filenamed files to a long file name folder you will get this message as well.
I'm having an odd problem, which leaves me quite puzzled. Hoping to get some input from more tech savvy folks on this.
Basically, I'm backing up the contents of the internal hard drive of an old Windows Vista desktop computer to a Brand-new 'Silicon Power' 5TB external drive. And when I try to copy over a 9.8GB video file, I'm getting that good old "file too large for the destination file system" error message.
That would make sense if this was some old drive with, say, FAT32 file system. But this is a brand-new drive with NTFS file system on it (and yes, I double checked that this is the case in its Properties). So why would a 9.8GB file present a problem and be supposedly too large? And what could be a fix/work-around for this?
Thanks in advance!
