Copy the file to a different drive or media than can handle the size file you wish to copy.

In some cases, you may be able to compress the item to be smaller, and fit onto your drive/media. For example, you could zip the file (using a third-party tool) or change the compression level if using an audio or video file and you have related compression software.
