Folder transfer to Quest aborts after about 3 GB

Hey, i am trying to transfer a mod which is about 6 GB big to my quest, sadly after about 3 GB there is a short notification sound from my Windows explorer, without an explicit error message and the transfer stops.

When i try to retry it and chose to skip the files that are already on, nothing at all happens.
I tried different cables and USB ports and i have about 15 GB available on my quest. I heard from other people that they had this issue too with files above the 3 GB mark.

Hey there, @Labi25! We definitely want for you to be able to transfer files to your headset without issue! In order for us to look into this, can you reply here with more info:

 

  1. Is this only happening with game mods, or with other files as well? We are not able to offer support for manually modifying game files on the device.
  2. Are you trying to move a single 6GB file onto the headset, or multiple smaller files? The headset uses a FAT32 file system that is limited in the total size of individual files it can handle to 4GB or smaller.
