    I have a MBA 13 2013 model and I have a 16gb pen drive with me and I'm unable to move the 9gb video file to my pen drive because of format limitations. NTFS disk writing not allowed in the mac. FAT does not work for files above 4gb size. How do I get this file to move to my desktop using my usb?

    Use exFAT. It works fully on Windows XP and higher on the Windows side, and it works on Snow Leopard and higher on the OS X side. It is the preferred system to format any removable storage.
