Can not backup to external harddrive

Hello,
I tried to backup partition C (VistaOS), backup without free space, to an external harddrive. If I use compression or not, Comodo BackUp says, I have not enough free space. But when I backup with the same configuration to partition D, the backup process is successful. Total size of the backup was cca 30 GB and on my external harddrive I have 60 GB free space.
I also tried to copy the successful backup (in Total Commander) from partition D to my external harddrive, but the copying process failed. There was a message in Total Commander that I can not copy the backup because it has a FAT32 file system.

My configuration:

  • Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit (Slovak)
  • ESET NOD32 Antivirus, CIS 3…581 (installed firewall with defense+ plus)
  • file system NTFS
  • Comodo Backup 2.2.127000.12

Thanks.

Hi

If you backup to a FAT32 partition you must set the split size to 4GB (4096MB) or less, otherwise you will get the above message. FAT32 does not support files larger than 4GB.

Thanks

Thank you. I did not realize that my external harddrive has FAT32 file system :slight_smile: So when I convert it to NTFS file system or split the backup to 4 GB, it should be ok :slight_smile:

Thanks

Yes

Thanks
