RN104 backup getting error "operation not supported"

Hello

I have an ancient RN104 holding four 4TB drives.
     It is 60% full and consists of seven sub-shares.
     I want to backup one of the sub-shares that contains about 1TB per Win11 Explorer

I plugged a 2TB drive in the rear port
I started a FULL backup of that sub-share

Here is the top of the LOG file

   Why does the backup stop on the .AVI and .MP4 file types?

Re: RN104 backup getting error "operation not supported"

My guess, since you didn't give enough information, is that the drive is formatted as FAT32, which has a maximum file size of 4GB and your movie files are the only ones larger than that.  Reformat as NTFS.
