Small Busines server 2011 file copy problem

I am trying to copy a folder from one location on an SBS 2011 server C drive to another location on the same drive. The C drive is a RAID 5 3 disk array as one volume.

There is almost 2TB of available space on the drive, yet on the file copy (which is like 23Gig) I get stopped with a message saying there is not enough disk space available for some of the files. It asks me to retry/skip/cancel.

What is the deal???   I miss the SBS 2003 XP file copy.

Thank in advance

You are probably hitting the standard user Quota limit of 2.0Gb of data and SBS will stop you copying more than you are permitted to the destination because copying the files will make the files yours and you will be estricted to 2.0Gb as standard.

Increase the user limit for yourself and then try moving the files again.

SBS Console> Users & Groups> Users Tab> Pick Your User Account.

In the Tasks Pane, click on Edit User Account Properties and then on the Folders option, increase your limit to 5.0Gb for example.

Then try the copy again.
