Hard disk format
Due to the large size of BPM’s factory soundbank UFS files, the disk containing the soundbank files must be able to support individual files larger than 4 GB. This is determined by the disk’s file system format.
The default file system format for disk drives on Mac OS X and Windows are compatible with BPM’s soundbank files:
Mac OS X: HFS+ (Mac OS Extended, journaled or unjournaled)
Windows: NTFS The FAT32 format is not compatible with BPM’s soundbank files, as it does not allow file sizes greater than 4 GB.
If you experience trouble copying the UFS files to your hard disk, refer to the troubleshooting chapter in the BPM User Guide.
