Copying the file greater than 4GB causes problem in Teracopy 3.5

There is no warning or message when we copy a file say 6GB of size to a drive formatted with fat32. Terracopy simply proceeds and gets stuck at 4GB mark. Ideally it should have not let that transfer happen and let the user know about limit.

More helpful error message than "Target: There is not enough space on the disk."

That is the error message I got when I tried copying a 10 GB file to a 32 GB USB stick. Huh? I was utterly dumbfounded.

So I tried copying it with the normal Windows tool, and it gave an error message that immediately told me what the problem was: "The file is too large for the destination file system."

Aha! Of course, I need to format it as NTFS instead of FAT32.

But I would never have figured that out with Tera Copy's error message.
