    Help External HDD

    Hi Guys,

    I have two external drives one Fat 32 and one NTFS, I can read from the NTFS but not add to it and can read and write to the Fat 32, the problem I have is that I have a few files that are between 6 and 10 gig and need to back these up.

    How can I do it as the Fat 32 will not accept anything over 4.5GB

    any ideas?

    Thanks

    Install Paragon NTFS, from newsgroups that will allow you to read and write to NTFS. Either that or copy stuff to the local drive then reformat and external one with MAC OS Journaled.

    Paragon is a godsend, been using it since i switched from Windows to Mac

    However i did have an issue with 1 drive, was accessing the drive and my mac kernel panicked, on restart the whole partition of the hard drive has collapsed.

    Was all recovered using data recovery software, but was not fun
    just a heads up, only happened once with me but worth noting

    Thanks
