Sounds like you are hitting the file size limit for the file system you

I also suspect this is the problem here. John, is the file still 4.6 GB
when you arrive to the other computer? (or after you copied it to the
USB device)

Try hashing the file locally and check at the other end. Eg. 
sha256sum evolution-backup.tar.gz > evolution-backup.sha256

and at the final computer
sha256sum -c evolution-backup.sha256

PS: It's strange that a 3 TG media didn't came formatted as NTFS.

Use the unix command "split" to split the big archive into files of a
lower size and put them together via "cat" when restoring. The nautilus
file manager has a script package where you can select a file and do
this via context menu.
