Kind of following up on the same sort of thing.... I had a problem
copying to a 512MB USB stick formatted vfat. I could easily copy files
over but could only get about 150MB out of the 512MB. Reformatting the
stick did nothing. It was then I dredge some old DOS memories up...
I was copying to the root directory and with DOS you can only hold a
certain number of files in the root. As soon as I starting copying to a
subdirectory I could fill the stick up.
Probably well known to everyone here but it took me a couple of days to
figure out what was going.
