View Full Version : download stopping because disk is full but there is still 10Gb available

Ok, I am downloading the latest version of opensuse

using getright it has stopped at 97% and keeps telling me that

Error saving to file:

It is likely the disk just filled up-- unless a CD (or other removeable disk) where GetRight was saving the file was just removed
Stopped Download

The size of the download is over 4 Gb and I have around 10Gb spare on that drive at this point

I am going to say my filesystem is fat32 AND I AM NOT SURE IF THIS HAS A BEARING BUt the files has stopped at size 4096Mbs which is one of those magical numbers in file systems

(sorry about the caps, i swear the keyboard is shrinking)

Any help would be appreciated

-------Dammit I just clicked fat32 has a file size limit of 4gb, argh how did I not put those 2 together, any workaround?

The only way around it would either be to save to a different filesystem, or find some way of splitting the file up as it downloads.

There could be other options though... just so that you don't take my words as gospel :)

No worries i was able to drag the file on to an ntfs drive and continue the download
