Actually Windows (and OS X) will recognize files of any size when the drive is formatted as ExFAT.

FAT 32 is the formatting that has the size-limitation. I have an external HDD that syncs to both a PC and a Macintosh. It's formatted as ExFAT and contains ISO images and MKV files of DVDs larger than 4 Gb. ;)

For $20 you can get Paragon NTFS 9 - a fully featured, supported and robust solution that beats any current FUSE solution.

Had too many FUSE data corruption issues to use it anymore.

I totally agree....
Paragon NTFS works like a charm...worth every cent.
