    An WD "blue" 3TB drive formatted to GPT (I used MiniTool) that shows correctly in Win7;
    2800GB total,
    760GB used,
    2035 free

    When I tried to add 68GB of mp3's, over the Network, I received an error that I need something like 70+ GB more space. :eek: :rolleyes:

    I took the drive out of the X10, connected it to a eSATA port on my Tower, did the same procedure with no apparent issue.
    Put it back in the X10 and it appears that all is well.

    So what's wrong??? o_O

    Did a Windows check for errors?

    Sorry for the late reply, I didn't see a e-mail to these replies.
    One third of the drive is media files, so I really don't want to wipe it unless I absolutely have to. I will try a chkdisk.

    What may be some weird reason; is there some Android file number or size limit within each folder? IOW's, the amount (space) and/or number of media files in one folder (regardless of what the rest of the drive looks like) returns that error? This has happened twice when tiring add add files from within the X10. Doing the same operation from the PC is fine.
    This is my 1st time exposure to Android, some Linux experience, mostly M$ (unfortunately), so I'm not aware of all the Android 'quirks'. ;)

    Looks fine to me. If The problem repeats, make a backup, re-format and restore.
