Partner organization:

Problem: When I copy a file large than 4Gb (using nautilus) in a
pendrive formatted in Fat32 (typical), the copy fails when past over
4Gb indicating "fail copy". That is because Fat32 do not support files
over 4Gb, but I forgot that, then nautilus fails later 10 minutes to
copy. ¡10 minutes waiting for error, that can be anticipated! Posible
solution: Maybe useful to check if the file is larger than the
filesystem support before start copy. Why let to pass 10 minutes to
tell me if I wrong?
Nautilus also makes some validations before start copy, for example
verify the sum of files is larger than space available, this maybe
another one.
yes i'm fool, but machines are intended for resolves my problems XD,
