    Beginning of the video...
    and... 7:37.
    I can find many more videos if you'd like. There's actually way too many. You can search and find them.

    I'm not saying that the original poster's USB drive is like this. I, like I stated before, want to make sure I get the possibility that the device is fake, off the table.

    And to the original poster:

    We can do a true test on the device to see the true size of the device. Follow through that tutorial, and tell me what results you get.

    But there is no indication this is a counterfeit drive. @Rong1 cannot copy a 7.17 GB file to the flash drive because it is formatted as FAT32 which has a 4 GB file size limit. Thus the error, "The file is too large for the destination file system."

    Once the drive is formatted as NTFS or exFAT and the file won't copy, then there is evidence the drive may be counterfeit. I don't think we should confuse @Rong1 with other possibilities since the very first glaring, solid reason for the error is the FAT32 formatted partition.
    I agree 100% with everything you wrote (except that you're guessing about its provenance)... but I've had my fingers burned twice now with counterfeits, so threw that in to be considered as a possibility, nothing more. At the end of the day, that's why we respond, right? With our own knowledge and experience, right?

    (However, if this site becomes script-driven [Do this, do that... in this order] then I guess I'm out of here... 'cos it can all be automated/chatGPT'd these days. )

    Exactly agree with you. It's all in my experience.
    My post is intended for, and only for, the person who started the thread. I don't understand why others decide to look at my reply, which is intended to help the original poster, and have their opinion about it.

    I know what the last letter in "KISS" means. It stands for the word "stupid", intended towards me. That is very rude and disrespectful. I find that completely unnecessary to call other people in this forum stupid. I don't understand why I was given the chance to be called stupid for my idea of how the USB device could be counterfeit. Almost anything and everything is possible now-a-days with the complexity and advancement of technology, and if possible to analyze the possibility that the USB device is counterfeit, then THAT is the solution to what's going on. (Check out my previous post of the link to the video to do a real physical check of a USB's real amount of possible storage). Why completely avoid doing a quick analysis of the USB device? It's not gonna hurt me, it's not gonna hurt the thread starter. If it somehow affects you negatively, then it's best to completely avoid the subject and only suggest what you think is wrong with the USB device... to the thread starter; not me.

    Whenever I make posts as replies, or thread starters, I would only appreciate regular replies, or constructive criticism from other members. If you have something offensive instead, then please keep it to yourself.

    Thanks.

    You cant copy a file larger than 4,294,967,295 bytes to fat32.

    you could convert it to ntfs and then the file should copy - assuming the partition has enough space.

    In situations when there are already files on there it is possible to convert non destructively

    It is a free program from aomei

    IMO? Don't worry about it. Whilst we don't (yet) have a 'Guru' forum or set of rules for 'Guru' behaviour' to decide infighting ( ), I'm of the mind to stick with 'opinions may differ - no harm, no foul).

    I've had to walk away from this forum a couple of times whilst I calmed down.

    But I've always come back 'cos... good or bad, it's one of the best forums on the planet, IMO.

    You're completely right. It's not worth it. I don't want to be a part of that conversation. I'll just not log in for the time being.
    Too bad that I replied to a bunch of other threads lately.. I hope my posts don't require follow-ups. I don't even remember what they are about.

    Hopefully the follow-ups are unrelated to my replies. If I don't reply to follow-ups, then... oh well.

    I'm going to stick with "don't worry about it'... and add that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, even if you vehemently disagree.

    Life's too short, @pepanee... keep posting. Like me, you'll work it out. I post about my own experience, knowing full well that it may be unique... but perhaps not. Maybe it resonates with someone else's experience... and they benefit. Job done... that's why we respond to posts, surely?

    How's about we get this post back on topic, OK? I'm pretty sure that OP would appreciate that...
