Hello all, I cannot create a new virtual hard disk on either of my drives nor on either of my OS's.

 

Every time I try I get a (VERR_FILE_TOO_BIG) error, (See screen shots) I am only trying to make a vhd that's around 65-70gb.

 

 

I even tried installing it on the secondary hdd (1TB with 600 something gigs left) but I still get "file too big, not enough space" error, which obviously there is space.

 

Spoiler

 

Spoiler

Anyone have any ideas on why this is occurring?, I can create it on my linux side  on my SSD easily but it will not make it on the second tb HDD.

 

First SS is from regular user, second SS is from root.  and as 've said before, i can create it on my SSD but when i try to make a vhd on my TB is says there is no space, when if you look in the bottom left there is 700 gb free it says, and windows says it has 600+ gb free.

Hi,

 

What is the file system used on the 1TB volume?

 

For example FAT32 can only accept files with 4GB max.

Ahhh, it IS FAT32, should i change it too NTFS?  I had it FAT32 so my linux and my windows can add/remove data.

 

Completely forgot about that. *doh*

Hi,

 

Converting to NTFS is one option but probably you will need to install support for that on Linux.

 

Another option could be exFAT this also need to install support for Linux https://www.howtogeek.com/235655/how-to-mount-and-use-an-exfat-drive-on-linux/
