AmiKit version? WinUAE version? Dir or hardfile? PC filesystem? Windows version?

Can you try different WinUAE versions? I think it has something to do with the dir emulation...

What program you used to copy files?

Usual cause is buggy free space checks. Size calculations simply overflow due to either "huge" total size or "huge" available size.

Common problem and nothing to do with emulation or filesystem type. Most applications use 32-bit signed arithmetic which overflows if value is bigger than 2G.

Larger than 1G drives were huge and extremely expensive when most applications were written..

I have a 6 gig partition that I use for my Amiga
emulation installs so must be the problem.
I remember when i had a "real" Amiga
and bought a 4.3 gig hd and had the last partition
up to the end of the drive I was always have problem till I
moved the last partition to 3.9
Also when I move stuff,I skip the check size option

Nice to see you here Toni and thanks for your great work

having the problem again Tried to install gui4cli and hold me full but the Amikit dir is just under 1 gig ! See above for my set up. Thanks for any ideas on how to fix.I did notice during the install-a message to fast to see-some thing about _uaefsdb._ which as far as I know is just a file that is made when you access another partition/file that is not in the Amikit path
Thanks !

I have a feeling it's your installer program that needs to be updated.

Let's see what others think...

PS. I'll test it when I get home from work.

that's is what I thought also but just tried to copy some files from ram: and got the same message I did notice that I have quite a few _uaefsdb._
files also and using search on the Windows side found 1794 of them !!!!
What is up with that ? And what is the function of that file ?
Is there a way to turn it off ? never have seen that option in the config page

Well, I did install GUI4CLI version 3.8 without any problems. It looks like it's using a non-standard installation program, but it worked.

It isn't just free space but also total space of drive. If either one is >2G, size detection overflows can happen (depending on how the installer does it)

Toni,

In my case, I'm using a WinXP directory as my HDD. It has over 18GB free.

I can try it later on the Amiga-formatted flash drive.

But, yes, I have seen that overflow situation in the past.

I successfully installed the software on my 3GB Work: partition on the Amiga-formatted flash drive.

ok Toni , I guess that is my problem then as I have a fat32 partition dedicated to Amiga emulation-AmiKit/Aros-that is a little over 6gig.So if I resize to just under 4 gigs, I should not have that problem any more ?
And nobody explained why we need _uaefsdb._ ????????
Thanks !

_uaefsdb._ files are used if Amiga data are stored on FAT32 partitions. The files contain Amiga specific information like file comment and so on. Those files are default part of AmiKit installation, don't worry. If NTFS partition is used, the files are not needed as the Amiga specific information are stored in different way.

ok what happens if I delete them all ?
like I said,I found 1794 of them and most are
in the 1600 bytes size. That adds up !!!

I am not sure. If you delete them, you loose all the Amiga file comments and file attributes. Nothing serious, but several files have S attribute set and might not work correctly anymore.
