The theoretical file size limit on FAT32 is 4Gb, but many applications
have problems dealing with files larger than 2Gb probably because they
use signed types for the file size information.

The 4Gb limitation is there simply because the file size is stored in
the directory structure as a 32-bit number.

For what it's worth:
