#399 Samba not enough free space

Rien Hofman

Samba: not enough disk space error / Windows Vista

Within the webgui you are able to configure a root share to access all volumes. This is a nice feature but comes with a caveat. Warn the user when he creates this share.

Explorer of Windows XP works fine, but some applications and Windows Vista shows the error 'not enough free disk space'.

Myshare01 /mnt samba reports disk space of root volume, writing fails to mount points underneath
Myshare02 /mnt/volume2 this works fine
Myshare03 /mnt/volume3 this works fine
