Well I had an interesting problem today, one that I haven't encountered before in roughly 12 years of Mac-ing.
I brought my wallstreet powerbook into work today to transfer some stuff to it, so I slapped it onto my ethernet hub and mounted my os9 partition on my g3 desktop. I attempted to copy a 24k file to the drive, and was informed that there was not enough room on the drive, and that 27.6mb more was required. ? So I did a get info and found some surprsing results.
Yes, thanks to the miracle of mac os 9, I managed to have over 1000 GIGABYTES of info on a 1.46GB partition. Pretty neat, huh?
Restarting both machines had no effect. The powerbook has the OS X beta on it, I'm assuming that's causing this wackiness (though I have file shared before without probs). I booted into OSX and shared the drive from there and it worked fine.
