User space limits?
« on: April 16, 2009, 07:11:51 pm »
My wife's wind*ws computer has got problems .... so I told her to copy all her precious files to the 1TB raid core share documents folder. While she was doing this she got a notification that it was out of space. It isn't.

I'm guessing there are user limits but I can't find the setting in the web admin. Anyone got any ideas.
Regards
Barney

Is it possible that her laptop is out of space. There is space necessary on a copy to a LAN drive to hold the files temporarily, until write confirmation is achieved, kind of like a cache. Perhaps her hard drive does not have enough space to hold the temporary files, until write can be confirmed across the LAN.
Just a thought. I have copied several gigabytes of mp3's from a laptop to the core, but I had at least twice as much free space on the source hard drive.

Hi Seth.
It might be a caching issue as she was trying to move several gigabytes of data. Still not sure though. If I figure it out I'll report back.
