I had this problem when i installed 1999 with it reformatting my drives. The
problem is it didn't recognize the partition geom right. My problem was i had a
2 gig partition, it was formatted as if it were 1 gig, and its max files were
only 65k of them. So when i tried to have more then 65000+ files on this drive,
it still had space, but no blank table entries for the new files. whoops.
Im not sure what caused it, but what i did was put the files on another
drive(s), reformat the drive (which did it right (?)), and move them back. I'd
like to think there is a better solution. Ideas?
Hope this helps. Good luck.
