I have a user that has a external USB 500GB HDD. He has some data that he needs to access mainly from CentOS (v5.5 64bit). Sometimes, he takes the drive with him and needs to access the data from a windows PC. There are thousands of files to copy. The data size is roughly 425GB.
I formatted the drive FAT32 with 4k cluster size (for portability) and all went well. I gave the drive back to the user to copy the data onto the drive from a network unix server. At some point during the data copy, it errors out with a "No space left on device" error.
A "df -h" reveals:
/dev/sdc1 465G 18G 447G 4% /media/FOUR_GX
A "df -i" reveals:
/dev/sdc1 0 0 0 - /media/FOUR_GX
It almost appears to be an INODE issue.
Thanks in advance!
