    Hi Folks,

    A while ago I did a backup of my AA1. The file got to 1GB and then said it was finished. I didn't belive this as I have a 16gb SDHC with only 8gb space left. I didn't do too much on this problem but now I need to fix it.....
    Yesterday I plugged in an external DVD writer. Using xcdroast I set up a temp storage directory for iso files etc. Xcdroast sees 1gb space free......

    So, as disk quotas is not turned on why am I limited to 1gb file size?

    Neil
