I have a SBS 2003 SP1 Server with a USB Ext. Hard Drive. I have created a share to the Ext. Hard Drive. When I try to create a mapping to the share (remotely or on the server itself) i receive error message saying "Not enough Server Storage Space is available to process this command".

That's often caused by either your AV Software or your External hard drive isn't formatted as NTFS.  Check the formatting first.

Drive is formatted NTFS and the AV has been running on the same version for at least a year.

What is the AV Software you're using?
