When I try to copy a big batch of files from my NAS to the Snakeoil musicserver, I get a notification: not enough space to copy.
But in the Snakeoil server, a 6TB HDD is inside.

What am I doing wrong?? I can only copy small batches of 8 GB at once

This is a Windows share limitation in Linux system. It looks at the free space of the parent instead of itself to calculate disk space. So it seems your parent drive only have 8 GB of space free, so it sets it's limits to that. I believe the reason for this is the file is transferred to a temp location on the parent first before being moved to the share drive itself.

I'm sure this can be fixed, because I do not have this problem with my NAS. Unfortunately, just can't find the solution to this, yet.

So for now, just have to copy files in small batches at once.
