Default Retrospect

I don't know if anyone is familiar with this program but its just a back up program. This is my question. One of my companies wanted to get an extra external back up, on and off site, and the new external drive would not back up. I kept getting a not enough space error, which makes no sense since it is a brand new drive. Well long story short I formated the drive using NTFS instead of FAT32 and it seems to be working. Why would it not work with FAT32 is there a limit to the individual file size? Considering that retrospect place the back up into one big file. Anyone have a thing?
