I bought Humble Bundle 9 and want the DRM free version of Brütal Legend. HB says that it has a file that FAT32 file systems can't download it because its size(over 8 GB) it's a zip file.

I have a Samsung Spinpoint 1TB from 2011 if that matters.

If you have to ask, you aren't using FAT32. It's not a hardware property, though - internal hard drives always leave the factory unformatted, and it's up to the user (or PC manufacturer) to format them. Your hard drive could be formatted in FAT32 if you really wanted, but I don't think current versions of Windows even give you this as an option at setup time. It certainly isn't done by default any more - even WinXP defaults to NTFS.

the thing with that is that I have to download the zip file from HB first.

edit #2: unless you're referring to the way you unzip with pants :P
