FAT 32 files size limitation?

  morris948 12:40 23 Sep 2005

On my laptop PC which uses FAT32 on Win 2000 i have a database file that has grown to 4Gb. its a lotus notes .nsf file that gets replicated regularaly.
I got a message that stated the disc is full, but i have plenty of disk space.
Could it be that FAT 32 can only allow a file size up to 4 Gbytes?
and if i convert to NTFS would this solve the problem.

To convert click on start, run and type 'cmd' into the box (without quotations)

from the command prompt type: convert x: /fs:ntfs (where x = your drive letter) exactly as it appears here (copy and paste if you like, making sure you replace x with your drive letter which is probably c)
