SOLVED Not enough room it says

When I go to copy a nearly 6 GB movie in MPEG-TS format from my hard drive to a new USB drive with 14.5 GB unused, the system always says there is not enough room to copy it. From the math I learned there is more than twice enough room to put 6 inside of 14.5, so I'm flummoxed as to what to do to solve this. I tried creating a folder on the USB and copy into that folder, but it made no difference. Still not enough room.

Would appreciate any pointers on what's going on here and can I work around it? Thanks. Larry

Thanks, Gerjon. That is the situation. Now I need to figure out how to reformat the USB drive.
That was easy enough once MS showed me how. Surprised I never encountered this problem before in 40 years of computing. Thanks for your helpl.
