Here is a summary of my Machine Via Everest Home
Not sure what other info you need other then I deleted some stuff off of the drive and ran disk cleanup and then copied a file but the second I get back to 222GB Free space (about 75.5 GB Used) windows Tells me to run disk cleaner to free up space
Its a 300GB drive why if its not even a 1/3 full does windows do this I've tried reinstalling drivers if i remove the drive and put it in an external case I have no problems but internally this issue occurs

How big of a file are you trying to copy? FAT32 has a file limit size of 4GB.

I would look into converting the drives to NTFS to start.

ok then thats my problem if its over 4 gb I can't copy to fat32
does NTFS have a limitation as well what sucks though is I wanted to share this drive with a mac whic will read NTFS but not write to it is their any way to tweak the limit or another format I can use i want to transfer 8 GB files from mac to pc
