So, question:

I want to format my harddisk so that it can transport files > 4gb and that it can be used on both Mac & Windows..

NFTS can only do files <4gb, Fat32 is same..

Any alternative ?

What?
NFTS can handle any file size.
Files over 4GB should copy over with no problems.
FAT32 is the only file system that can't handle files bigger than 4GB.
Are you sure your drive is formatted to NFTS?

Are you using a large capacity flash drive or an external hard drive?
Most portable USB storage mediums come formatted in FAT32 in order to interface with the maximum number of operating systems.
Make sure you format to NFTS.

I guess an alternative method would be to use a file splitting application and copy your files over in parts.
Then reassemble them once on the drive.
