What is reason that partition does not support files larger than 4G, how to solve?
The current major online game clients are very large and have a lot of game data files. When we install game, computers of many network users often give message "the current partition does not support files larger than 4G", if your computer has this problem, do not be nervous, today I will introduce a method to solve this problem. Let's first understand cause of this problem!
Reason for rejection:
The reason for this issue is that disk is formatted as FAT32 partition. The FAT32 format is a disk partition format that was commonly used in earlier versions of Windows operating system. Its disadvantage is that it only supports file installation within 4G. If it exceeds 4G, message "The current partition does not support files larger than 4G" will appear. Now this kind of FAT32 is eliminated. NTFS-formatted drives are commonly used, so there isn't much analysis here.
Right click on mouse to open "My Computer" and select "Properties" where we can see "File system" will display drive format used by that drive letter.
If FAT32 drive does not support 4G capacity files, we can convert FAT32 format drive to NTFS format.
The data files on disk are not affected in any way during conversion.
Step 1. Click "Start" - "Run" - type "cmd" one by one, click "OK" to open "Command Prompt"
Step 2. If downloaded file is on drive D, type "convert d: /fs:ntfs" (without quotes) at CMD command prompt, then press Enter and wait for drive to be converted That's it. If it's drive E, type "convert e:/fs:ntfs" and same is true for other drive letters. (Only mouse copy and paste is allowed in CMD command line)
Step 3. We can restart computer. Some netizens say that system gives message "This volume is in use by another process and conversion cannot be performed." then use cmd command. Just do it.
After drive conversion is complete, restart your computer and then reinstall downloaded game files to a drive letter, and this issue may be resolved.
