The Media Wizard is unable to copy my image to USB despite free space

If you're using FAT32 formatted boot media, SmartDeploy is able to split your image wim file into smaller parts to fit within the size restrictions of FAT32 when creating offline deployment media. However, SmartDeploy cannot split individual files within an image. 

If you're attempting to do this and receive this error; then you may have a file on your reference VM that's larger than 4GB.

WinDirStat is a free tool that is helpful in identifying files and folders that are taking up space on your disk that can help you determine if this is what's happening in this case.
