What kind of database? if its a mysql database you could use mysqldump databasename > file.sql and then create a tar package and copy it to your new server.

I think this is what you want to do.

Which file system are you using and what blocksize is it formatted with? Linux file systems can easily accommodate 50 GB files if they are set up to do so. The two most commonly used, ext3 and ext4, can be set up for a maximum file size of 2 TB and 16 TB respectively according to this Wikipedia article..
