  • You'll need to use Disk Utility and format it as HFS+. FAT doesn't support files larger that 4GB (I think) – At0mic Nov 21 '15 at 21:06
  • Yes i reformatted as one of the OSX options as I only need it on macs and that worked. You can post that as an answer. Please include a screenshot of the format options. I can't do that right now while the copies are stil running. – Michael Durrant Nov 21 '15 at 21:12

You need to use Disk Utility and format it as HFS+. FAT doesn't support files larger that 4GB (I think). Go to Disk Utility and select the drive. Then erase it and select the format as Mac OS Extended (Journaled). You can name it whatever you'd like.
