Default Windows 7 - The file is too large for destination

I have an 8GB flash drive and I'm trying to put a 4.93GB Virtual Hard Drive Image on the flash drive, but it says the file is to large. I formatted the drive and it says free space is 7.45GB. Any idea why windows says the file is to large?

What format is the flash drive in? I might be wrong, but I think standard FAT (not FAT32) had a file size limit of under 4GB so if you are formatted in FAT that could be the problem.

I really didn't think of that. It was set to FAT32, I formatted it to NTFS and now it allows me to put the file on there.
