Copying Large Files - Works with mapped drive (UNC), but not with Windows 7 Libraries RRS feed

  • Question

  • If I copy a large file (approx 50GB) to my home server (PP3) using a Windows 7 library I receive an error saying that there is insufficient space.  I thought this was to do with the size of the 'landing zone' on the primary HDD.  However, if I map the UNC path and access the same area of disk I can copy the file with no problem.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Is the library pointing only to the server (and not any local folders as well)?
