Hi, when downloading huge files (> 700 MB from easynews.com) Mozilla reports too few available disk space and terminates download. The actually available disk space is > 9 Gig on an IDE disk. Bug was reproducable on several partitions, all with enough space left. btw: this problem also appears sometimes with Netscape 4.76 but Netscape offers you the possibility to continue downloading. cheers, Esteban
Most likely a bug 129923 issue. Reporter, see if making enough space available in your temporary directory to hold the file allows you to download it.
Found the same problem; corrected by cleaning out ALL Temp folders, including Cookies, Temp, Internet Temp, etc. Running Disk Cleanup frequently should prevent the error from recurring. (My experience with this problem, anyway.)
firstname.lastname@example.org -- Can you reproduce this problem on a recent build? Is it different from bug 129923? If the answer to both those questions is "yes," then feel free to re-open this bug! -M *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 129923 ***

This problem is still recurring, even with ALL temp files emptied and cookies deleted. Even increasing cache size did not correct the problem. Target file size: 428KB, target disk space: >1GB. Occasionally, just retrying to down load the file goes without a hitch, but sometimes the problem is so stubborn that a different disk has to be selected. Seems to be a "random" problem; not always reproducable, only annoying when it happens. OS: W2000; browser version: 1.3b.
