My hp will not allow me to transfer the large file onto a thumb drive 128 or a 500 gig external hard drive, both have been formatted to exFAT 126, (both work on my other laptop which is windows 10 up to date drivers). I have used the Hp Laptop to format the external drives also. when I look it shows the drives and acknowledges that the drive(s) are there and that the full amount of space is on the drive (blank currently). However, when I try to drag a 70 gig file onto the external drive or thumb drive the computer show that there is not enough space and gives you the information for the C drive of the Hp laptop. I can move a small file onto the drives but nothing large. Any assistance would be appreciated.
tried copy and paste did not work, reformatted the drive still does not work, note: this drive 500 gigs and 128 gig thumb drive work on ALL my other windows 10 computers but not the HP LAPTOP I can transfer 70 gig file no trouble however the HP keeps say c: does not have enough space (the reason for the external drive). I am not trying to save to C: but f: which is the letter that has been assigned to the external drive. have tried copy and paste, I have tried drag and drop onto the external drive, I have also opened the external drive and tried everything over again. I can drag and drop small files with no trouble just will not allow any larger files what so ever keep thinking I am trying to put it in C: which I am not
