Copying from exFAT to NTFS doesn't work

  Harrison Hawkes 08:49 22 Aug 2018

Is there a way to copy extremely large video files (over 100 GB / file) from an external hard drive using exFAT to an internal hard drive that uses NTFS?

When I try to copy and paste, my computer (with Windows 10) starts copying them but then stops with a message \”Could not find this item This is no longer located in \PATHTOEXTERNALHARDDRIVE. Verify the items location then try again.\”

Are you sure the video files exist on the exFat drive? Can you open them? There is a 4GB file size limit on exFat drives.

Is there a possibility that your computer cannot recognize the exFAT file system for some reason,then causes the copying&pasting failure? Did you try to copy them to the NTFS drive one by one? Or you can directly copy partition in Windows.

JJ, 4GB file size limit is on Fat32 not exFat

Yes, that has been pointed out to me in a previous reply that appears to have been removed?? I am still suspicious of the file size - over 100GB - thats pretty big considering an average film fits on a 4.7GB DVD??
