It depends on the file system. If you're using FAT32, the limit is 4 GB. If you're using NTFS, the limit is much greater than the size of your drive.

If you're using NTFS, the limit is much greater than the size of your drive. The only restriction under NTFS is the entire volume minus the MFT and a few other components/overhead, there is virtually no limit. ~~Mad Mod Mike, pimpin' the world 1 rig at a time Can't find your answer ?
