    I'm trying to copy & paste a folder on to a USB hard drive with about 147gb of information inside of it but after copying for a little while [about 14gb's] of information. I keep getting a message saying that there's already a folder named that stops.

    I've erased/formatted all information that was on that USB hard drive.

    Does anyone know what may be going on?

    BTW, I was wanting the USB hard drive to be readable/writable by a PC, so I chose MS-DOS (FAT).

    Keep in mind that FAT32 formatted partitions can't store files bigger than 4GB.
