Can't create backup .iso of more than 3.99GB
Can't create backup .iso of more than 3.99GB –
As the title says, my pc is having issues creating a backup from my copy of Gran Turismo 4 using imgburn. It keeps telling me that I do not have enough disk space on my hard drive (I have at least 55 GB available). Note, I've found out that I am still running FAT32 on my internal hard drive, and I've read up from various places that FAT32 only allows for individual files of up to 4 GB. Which is probably why I always end up with an incomplete .iso of only 3.99 GB.
I have also read that NTFS drives allow for much larger files (ie .iso). So do I have to convert my hard drive to an NTFS file system in order to get a proper backup of larger than 4 GB? What is the easiest/safest way of going about this? Sorry if this is in the wrong area. Please move if it is.
Also, I am running Windows XP Home, Service Pack 2. Thanks for any info!
Yes thatīs what you have to do! Donīt forget to backup important files before formatting the disk, because everything will be deleted, but i guess you already knew that. When you have made a backup of your hdd just rightclick on it and choose format. Then you choose NTFS and hit format. Good luck!
you can convert FAT32 file to NTFS without formatting the Drive ..
CONVERT X: /FS:NTFS
X is your drive
Thanks for the replies!

Oh don't worry, I never do something this drastic without backing up. I was just trying to avoid deleting everything for now. It was just confusing why it was only creating 3.99 GB of the total iso and then telling me there wasn't enough space.

yeah on start then go to run and type cmd then on command prompt type CONVERT X: /FS:NTFS
^^OK, I'll give that a shot and see how it goes. Time to back up my drive again.
I wonder if I should do this to my backup partition [letter D:] drive and external hard drive as well? Just trying to cover all my bases since they are running FAT32 file systems also. And is it safe to say that everyone else here is running NTFS drives as well to aid in dual-layer PS2 backups?
NTFS is a better file system than fat 32. it is a "journaling"file system its more robust .

i don't use NTFS file system just because of some DVD9 games..
So which do you use? I've only researched Fat32Format so far.
since i got the PCs i use NTFS system ..
