Today, september 14th 2004, I noticed something
unpleasant. I work on my own share of a large company
server which does not have a very large space. Writing
text in Latex often requires ps (eps) figures which can
run big. So, I ran out of space. Unfortunately, nedit
simply gave the message "can not save, no space on
device" when I wanted to save a tex file created in
nedit. The only option I had was to press ok, which I
did, thinking I would have to re-edit the file after
making space on my share by removing some old files.
However, nedit also decided to delete the tex file
altogether! So, it did not leave the tex file unchanged,
but the tex file was gone completely. Fortunately, we
have a good backup system on our server, but I can
imagine this can be very annoying when working on
your private computer, running out of space (that can
happen) and then losing your tex file you have been
editing on for the last hour or so.
Just wanted to report this, maybe it's not new, but I
think it is something to recon with.
