Ubuntu 12.04 can't transfer files over 4 gigs.
A friend of mine cannot transfer a single file with a size over 4.3 gigs to external drives.
We've tried splitting the file into pieces to transfer on it and re-combine the files and it still goes down to 4.3 gigs instead of the 5.9 file size. Any ideas?

Almost all external drives are formatted as FAT32. The maximum file you can put on a FAT32 filesystem is 4GB. If you want to put larger files on there, you'll need to use a different filesystem on the drive like NTFS (if you wan to maintain compatibility with Windows), or ext4.
