I am using SP 2010 and try to copy a lot of files to a document library by the file explorer. I got this error:

There is not enough space on http://myCompany.com. You need an additional 13,4 GB to copy these files

I try to upload only small parts and only the first 3 parts worked. The fourth part give me again the same error but with another gb value:

There is not enough space on http://myCompany.com. You need an additional 2,4 GB to copy these files

What is going wrong? I do not have a site collection quota!

Here is a print screen of the site collection quota. There is no limit. enter image description here

    Check the quota setting for that site collection in Central Admin. – Amal Hashim Dec 5 '14 at 12:42
  • Dear Amal, see updated printscreen. There is no site collection quota. – Ola Dec 5 '14 at 13:26

    Can you check you SQL drives and see if those has enough space? – Amal Hashim Dec 5 '14 at 13:27
  • Couple of things to check....How big the file size you trying to upload? what is file upload limit on that web app? check Databas have enough space and also database not caped. – Waqas Sarwar MVP Dec 5 '14 at 14:20
  • The file size is 17GB. – Ola Dec 11 '14 at 11:03

Check How much space is left on the Hard Drive where SP2010 is running. SP expands very rapidly and it could just be that you are running low on space.

Also check your SQL Server Hard Drive if there is enough space. Unless they are on one machine.

Also bare in mind that more space is needed than the size of the files themselves when copying, expecially when the files to be copied are large.

You need to check enough space on your system drive which will be utilized while copying files to site.
