I am trying to copy my project on Element 2021 to a flash drive.  My flash drive is 32gb and the project is 5.4gb.  There is nothing on the flash drive.  When I try to copy it says the file is too big for the drive to move.  Is there something I am doing wrong.  I believe I should be able to move the project to the flash drive and still have over 25gb left on the flash drive.  Please help me, I am pulling my hair out and I don't have too much left.  Thanks

If you flash drive is formatted to fat32 it will no hold files over 4 gig.

Format to ntfs for unlimited file size. Beware formatting to ntfs will also result in not being able to use the drive in all devices such as a TV.

This seems to be Flash drive issue.

However you can use Project Archiver (File > Project Archiver) to only include media that you have used in your timeline.

This might reduce the size also.
