Maximum File Size

I've been reading more about the disk drives I just bought and find that they come formatted in FAT32 which means that the maximum file size is 4GB.
No I know this sounds silly but I started thinking 4GB, thats far too small and thinking that I should cancel my order with ebuyer.

On considering that for a few minutes, I actually don't have ANY files that big so shouldn't be a problem unless my backup software creates 4GB+ file sizes.

I could of course reformat in HFS or HFS+ either of which would remove the file size limit.
