There is not enough space on the disk

Problem

You can see the error message "There is not enough space on the disk" on the screen when you try to do either of the following:

  • During image creation

 Cause

  1. When a large file (more than 4GB) is saved in FAT32 file system.
  2. Simultaneously where more than one image creation is running on the same share path.

Resolution

To resolve this problem, follow the steps given below:

Ensure that the network share drive is in NTFS File system instead of FAT32

Based on the OS image the file size can go beyond 4GB. Hence ensure that it is formatted with NTFS file system. If the format is in FAT32 file system, large files of more than 4 GB size cannot be saved as a single file.

Ensure that there is enough space in the network share if you are running more than one image creation simultaneously.
