# 94MB file is too large to be uploaded on FAT32 file system

Everything is in the title : I've got a smb share with write access on a FAT32 file system (I'm aware of the 4GB limit).

I've got 426 GB free of 736 GB shown on the network drive.

Still if I try to upload a medium sized file (94MB) I've got the error :

The file 'fileName.extension' is too large for the destination file system.
<Cancel>


Do you know what can cause this error ? (maybe a by user quota ?)

And do you know how can I avoid it ?

The smb server is running on a Debian based ARM linux (Cubian on cubieboard) I access it on my Windows 7 64 pc.

I've install the samba using packages: samba samba-doc samba-common smbfs smbclient and adding in /etc/samba/smb.conf :

[SHARE_NAME]
path = /folder
comment = comment
writable = yes
browseable = yes
public = yes


Edit :

Here is the output for cd /media/path/ ; df . :

Filesystem     1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda2      771772352 324799744 446972608  43% /media/MULTIMEDIA


Edit 2 It appear that the file name being too long was the cause of this. (Same file with shorter name works fine) So I update my question : What is this filename length limitation about ? Does it take the full path into account or just the filename itself. and what it the actual limit ?

Thanks to commenters anyway :)

I dont know what a samba is, But the error looked to me at first that the files name itself is to long, for the file system, not the data size? –  Psycogeek Jun 27 '14 at 20:14
You're right... 0kb file, very long name : same error. 94Mb file short name : copy without error. Would you explain us What happens here ? –  Guian Jun 27 '14 at 20:56
