It will load the 4GB+ file until it hits the 4GB limit and then act like its still copying but will only copy 4GB of that file (not all of it) it wont doing any splitting whatsoever. Thus won't work.

Of course Sony's method is proprietary so we cant use it on external, if we could splitting wouldn't be needed at all, so the next best thing is FAT32 (some people use NTFS which allows files bigger than 4GB but it screws up a lot and isnt worth the risk, because compatibility seems to be bad)

And what do you mean, "meanwhile you still have a backup of the game on your external if you later wish to play the game again" the backup wont be all intact because of what i mentioned earlier about 4GB files on external, it'll only have up to 4GB of that file and wont work. If you truly want to back it up, obviously you can use a bluray or put the 4gb+ file(s) on internal and the rest of the game on external, then move those files on external back to internal for TB. Or if you quit using TB, do the same thing but then after merging 4GB file(s) and external files together on internal, move all of it back to external and MM should split it. Confusing I know.
