Somehow I've got a 27GB FAT32 partition I made with standard windows tools.
Don't know what the limit is, but it doesn't seem to be 20GB.

They can be useful, but for the average home user they won't get used from
one year to the next. Better to make sure your butt doesn't need saving!
For less than the cost of most recovery tools you can add more than enough
disk space to a desktop machine to keep a complete backup of your Archos.
The reason there are so many good disk recovery tools around is because so
many people don't keep any backups.
