Hello,

I have 1TB Fantom GForce external hard drive. When I tried to copy a file which was 4.5 GB I received a messages "No Free Space Left in the disk" when I searched the web I learnt that we cannot copy a file with more than 4GB on FAT32 voulme.

I went to Admin tools >>Device Manager and tried to change the volume to NTFS but it prompted me to format the disk. I did not format the disk. now when I am connecting to my Laptop it is not showing up this device.

PLEASE HELP ME I HAVE MY IMP DATA IN IT.

I am not sure if you have found a solution for this or not. use hjsplit to split the file into two 2gb something files and transfer them to your location and join them again using hjsplit. I did this and it worked for me.
