hi guys,

We have several shared folders on our file server and when we are trying to copy to the folder from an xp pc it is saying the drive is full when we have over 800GB of free space on the server where the folder is located.

when i look at the properties of the folder it says :-
size: 34.8GB
Size on Disk: 35.2

anyway to increase the size of the folder ????????

Folders do not have a set size unless a quota has been applied or unless the drive on which the folder is sat is not formatted NTFS.

If if a FAT drive then there is a approx 32Gb for a drive formatted in Windows, and a max size for any individual file of 2Gb (or 4Gb for FAT32)

No quotas are set by default so unless you have set them there will not be any.
Right click on the drive and check "disk quotas" under properties. if you have 2003R2 the quota may also be set on the folder itself.

Check your event logs for 'Event ID 2011'
If you see those try increasing your IRP stack size on the machine that is sharing
