Hi,

Could you please help on the following issue with one of my clients:

It all started one day for no aparent reason.
Client cannot copy files from his PC to a shared drive on the Windows 2003 SBS. He works on Windows XP workstation. The error says ' There is not enough free disk space. Delete one or more files to free disk space and try again' I can confirm that there is a lot of disk space on the server availabale. Moreover, 2 more computers that use the same share to copy files from and to do not have this issue.


I would appreciate your input.

Thanks

Could there be a virus on the client computer? I would run a scan with your favorite A/V software along with rootkit revelaer and hijack this.

Look at the shared drive in My Computer on the client (XP) box. What does it say is the disk size and available disk space for that drive?

Are quota's setup on those shares or quota setup per user on the server?

You can test this by performing a copy and let it fail. Look in the server's event log and see if there is an entry showing the user was denied access because if a quota.

Here is where it's etup and how to adjust it
