    I am moving a collection of data to a flash drive and I got the warning message that X.iso has extra information attached to it such as document summary which may be lost. Will copying it interfere with torrenting or interfere with making a hard disk copy?

    flash drives due to fat32 limitations means no file larger than around 3700gb in size give or take x amount of mb.It also means file names can only be x amount in length. I think 42 characters plus the extension but don't quote me on it.There's no telling what other files won't transfer i would suggest extracting the contents of the iso then transfer them using teracopy,once copied if there are any files that failed to get moved you'll have a list & therefore be able to make adjustments to name lengths etc to specific files then you can copy them over or place them back into a new iso & transfer that

    I am going to extract the collection of files by zipping it. Thank you.
