Default (Posted to Mac) Large Quick Time (15GB) files I need to transfer from Mac to Windows

I posted this in the MAC forum too but I need help:

Here's the problem: We have large Quick Time files captured on our server running Mac OS X (something or other version, I don't know but don't think it matters) and need to make them available to people working with them on Windows PC's.

I have an external hard drive (80GB) formatted NTFS. I was going to try to format it FAT32 but from what I've read, FAT32 wont handle the 15GB Quick Time file anyway (nothing over 4GB I think). The apple server can read the drive but CANNOT write to it.

Any help with some solutions will be appreciated!

Setup a network share and grab the files over the network. Or you could format your external harddrive as "Unix filesystem" and then use Explorer2fs to read the harddrive in Windows.
