Solution for creating images and FAT32 4gb file size limitations?
Just about ready to give up on Disk Utilty, I could not figure out why my 4.41 gb music folder would stop being created; I got a message "file size too big". Strange considering I have 72 gb to play with. Then it hit me that my FAT32 formatted external drive has that annoying 4 gb file size limitation. I tested this theory and sure enough, a 1gb file was made into a .dmg no problem.
If I want to create images in the future larger than 4gb, should I partition a drive with NTFS? Seeing as how I would like to create an image of my current HD, so I can safely swap to a bigger HD, this seems like a reasonable option. Am I correct or is there an alternative way?
Also, would you say that Disk Utility is a safe way to create an image of my Macbook hard drive for a future HD upgrade? Would you suggest a 3rd party app (like Carbon Copy ot SUper Duper) instead?
And finally, has anyone tried 500 GB notebook drives in their Macbooks yet?
Thank you .
