Anyone know anything about CCTV?

I have ctronics cctv with 1tb hard drive. I want to transfer some files to a usb for a neighbour (5 days worth) but when I insert a 4tb usb drive or 128gb usb drive, it says there is not enough room on the drives. I'm confused.

They were formatted, I tried them on both FAT32 and NTFS.

Not familiar with this particular CCTV but firstly you will need to cut the videos, the box should be able to do this itself, the file size is normally limited to less than 4gb, regarding the formatting of the usb again normally the CCTV system will do this.

On mine if I select a couple of cameras and the time stamp it will split up the videos into multiple videos while converting it to a video format that all devices can read, then if I plug in a usb and go to external storage on the box it will always tell me the system wants to format the usb before it will back up the media to it.

Hope this helps

*Edit to add, both my old setup, new setup and a neighbors are like this, all different brands and age, so good likely hood yours will be, it does all this when I go to the 'backup' or 'backup to external storage' options. It will format the usb first then ask what cameras and what time frame you want backing up (so reverse what I said above )

NTFS usually isn't recognised by many devices, it's more for Windows.
Fat 32 has a file size limit that can get problematic with large videos.

Format with ex-FAT thats well used but also less of a problem.
