So I got my hands on the final release of Windows Vista and all was good in the computerland. Today I was doing a little housecleaning on the computer, moving files here and there, deleting some crap and to my surprise, Vista gave me the following when trying to copy a file:
Error 0x800705AD. Ohh, well of course…. I should have known error 0x800705AD means the user tried to COPY AND PASTE. Are you shitting me?! Insufficient quota? WTF are you talking about Vista. First let’s check that I have enough disk space:
Ok, now by my calculations 413 MBs < 22.8 GBs. I can normally figure out almost any computer related problem. I Googled and scoured the net and found that some people are having this problem as well, but I can’t find a solution. The Microsoft Knowledgebase also has nothing regarding it either. I also tried turning on Quota Management for the disk, taking full ownership of the file, etc, etc, etc… this one has me stumped. When I copy the file via the command prompt there is no problem:
Vista, you clearly suck and have a problem copying large files. Did Microsoft overlook this big an issue? I highly doubt it… if anyone has any insight here I’d appreciate some feedback (I’m not using RC1 or Beta2, I have the final Build 6000). I don’t get this error for other files that are smaller in size… I’m guessing somewhere around the 400mbs size it starts to occur.
