"There is not enough free disk space"


M

I recieve this error when attempting to transfer a
9GB .mov file from my f:/ 40GB Maxtor 5200rpm drive to my
h:/ drive which is my 80GB Acomdata firewire drive that
has 50GB of free space on it (newly formatted and
scandisked).

Operation Systems: XP Home and XP Pro. Error occurs with
both. F:/ is formatted with NTFS and H:/ with FAT 32.

I think Windows is using the swap file as a middleman between the drives.
Try increasing it to something rediculous like 10gig for the copy and see if
that does it.

A FAT32 drive has an absolute maximum of 4GB for any file. Reformat H
from XP, (which will then use NTFS without the option at that size)
