The maximum size that you can have for a file in Windows depends on your Windows version and on the file system that you are using. FAT16 has a 2GB file size limit and FAT32 has 4GB as its limit. Normal files for home users usually don’t get this large however an exception to this is Microsoft Outlook PST file whose size can quickly grow and reach the maximum limits in FAT

With NTFS you don’t have any practical limit for the maximum file size and the file size is limited only by the maximum size of the volume.The theoretical maximum possible file size for NTFS file system is set at 16 exabytes, 1 exabtye is equal to 2^60 bytes and having this amount of data has not been practically possible till now
