We will change the file system FAT32 to NTFS because FAT32 can not transfer files larger than 4GB. To change the file system: Plugin your Pendrive >Right click on your USB Pendrive > Click on Format >Select NTFS file system >Uncheck quick format. (Before formatting your Pendrive take a backup of your files)
