I’m still trying to move everything over from my old 1 TB Buffalo Linkstation to a new 3TB My Book Live that I purchased last week.
I started encountering problems copying two large files to a private share, one ~4GB and the other ~7GB. At first they’d copy just fine until the final several MB, then it would stall for a while and even though it would ultimately “complete” the transfer – but the new file wouldn’t be there. I then found this thread:
Sure enough, the private share that I was trying to copy to was connected via WEBDAV, not Windows Network. So I deleted the connection and reconnected to the private share as described in that thread.
Now, however, when I try to copy the files Windows Vista advises:
"There is not enough space on sharename (\mybooklive). You need an additional 201 MB to copy these files.
Space free: 4.10 GB
Total size: 453 GB"
That, however, is completely untrue. According to the MBL UI I’ve only used 787 GB of 3 TB. The old Linkstation is only a 1 TB drive anyway!
Advice? Assistance? Thanks in advance!
