Team System VPC: Disk Full Error when Extracting


If you picked-up one of the nifty Team System VPC DVDs from the Team System Track Cabana, and you receive a “Disk Full” error when extracting the Virtual PC image, chances are you’re trying to extract the image to a drive volume that was formatted using FAT. FAT volumes are limited to a maximum file size of just under 4 GB (4 GB – 1 byte). Since the Virtual Hard Drive file (.VHD) is over 4 GB (approximately 8.5 GB), you’ll need to extract that file to a drive that was formatted using NTFS.


For more information, see Size Limitations in NTFS and FAT File Systems.
