The central core problem with either ext4 or ntfs on removable devices is that average Joe User can't be trusted to remember to unmount it (*) before unplugging the device. And, for that matter, why should they? Why shouldn't they be able to just stick it, use it, and pull it out?
In which case it has an internal SSD...
As already asked in the opening words of the first reply, why have you used FAT32? That filesystem has a 2 or 4 Gbyte file size limit irrespective of whatever OS it is used with.

(See Wiki for installation - http://www.raspberrypiwiki.com/index.php/X820) The term "internal" HDD is referring to the typical installation of the HDD on a workstation or laptop. This is not a USB "External" HDD, it is 2.5" Laptop HDD that is compatible with the X820 board. Has anyone used this board to expand the HDD capacity? I just want to be able to transfer larger files to build my media library. I Could not find any documentation relating to this board and the FAT32 formatting. If this will not work, I was thinking about purchasing a WD MyCloud 6TB wifi storage HDD and just run PLEX or Kodi to stream from it.
As I said in the very first reply to this thread, format the drive with a different file system.
