hi
i have downloaded and payed for paragon nfts on my new 15" macbook but when i try to transfer a file over 4gb onto a fat32 windows formated drive it still comes up with: The item “...” can’t be copied because it is too large for the volume's format.
what have i done wrong for paragon to not work when i used the trial it worked fine.
ps. i also tryed to download a free version before i ended up paying for it. could a older version be interfering with this new updated version? if so how can i fix this
please help
jess

Paragon NTFS is a driver which allows your Mac (OS X) to read and write to a NTFS formatted drive. That has nothing whatsoever to do with not being able to transfer a larger than 4 GB file to a FAT-32 formatted drive. FAT-32 is restricted to a single file that is less than 4 GB because of its sector limitations.

I have no idea what you're referring to about the trial version of Paragon working to allow files over 4 GB to be transferred to a FAT-32 drive as that is not what Paragon NTFS does.

There is nothing that will allow you to put a file >4 GB onto a FAT32 partition. This is a limitation of FAT32.

You want to store files over 4 GB, and the drive moves between Windows and Mac machines, now that you have NTFS for Mac, you are going to need to reformat the partition to NTFS.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
