You have more than enough available space on a given hard disk, so why can’t you park your file there? Read on as we investigate why Windows will deny you even if there is plenty of space to spare.
I got caught on this one once. It just shows how little attention the average person pays to common error messages.
That's exactly why I use exFAT for flash drives.
I don't think it's a matter of not paying attention, but rather unfamiliarity. I'm sure the average computer user doesn't know the difference between NTFS and Fat32, or even what a file system is, for that matter.
