I tried to extract an image file with PowerISO to an external drive. But it said I don't have enough space. My drive is almost empty, and the file is only 7GB.

This mostly happens because the file system of the partition you're trying to copy a 7GB file is in FAT32. The FAT32 file system supports files with 4GB in size. If you want to copy the 7 GB file, you'll have to format it to NTFS. If the partition is empty, go to My Computer, right click it, Format and then choose NTFS. After this procedure, you should be able to copy the file without any errors.
