Empty space check

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Anders Petersson's Freeware Forum : One Thread


Another little 'bug'. I have an USB drive of 250MB that is used for 200MB. I use your program to synchronise some documents from the server to it. Let's say it has to sync 200MB, then I will get an warning that the USB-drive has no room left. But actually almost all files are the same so it sometimes only has to copy a few files so that warning isn't true... It would be cool that NHB checks for the real needed space, or have an option not to check for free space.

anyway very cool program!!

Hey, also check my follow up post of the "busy files problem".

See you, Vincent

Hi Vincent.

Yeah, I know what yuo mean, I get that too. A check for "real needed space" would probably take twice as long as the acctual backup, and I don't think it's worth the effort. However, there is an option to turn the space check off. I think it is included in the latest beta. Anyway, it has been added to the code and will be in the final release. Thanks for the feedback.
