I am curious if there is a size limit to DriveImage XML for my backup.

I'm backing up a 111 GB HD to an external HD with 452 GB of free space, but I keep getting a warning stating there may not be enough room.

Help?


Thanks,
Blake

A tip: check how the drive is formatted, if it's FAT32:

The maximum possible size for a file on a FAT32 volume is 4 GB... File Allocation Table
