Description jan.vandesompele 2000-06-01 16:23:34 UTC
I've already mentioned this in the quota section. I've set a user quota of 
1Mb on all users. When I try to put a file of 2Mb on the disk through a 
share, I get a disk full message, but still the file is copied onto the 
disk. I can keep putting files on the share and every time I get a "disk 
full" message. This however only happens with Win2k machines. When I try 
to copy a file of 2Mb from a Win98 machine, I get the "disk full" message, 
but the file is not copied onto the disk. I don't know if this is a quota 
bug or samba bug...

It creates empty files; it's the only way samba can do
it. See:
