Default File Copy Problems

At work I am having a strange issue. I am trying to copy a 110MB file from one location to another. When I try to, Windows tells me that there is not enough space on the disk.

Problem is, there is about 500GB of free space on said disk. Windows correctly reports that there is 500GB of free space but for some reason it thinks that 110MB > 500GB.

The system is a Window Server 2008 R2. Any ideas will be appreciated.

Where are you copying it from? Sometimes if there's not enough room on the start location it won't copy it. How are you copying it? Can you try to move it to a thumb drive first?

I figured it out. Each user has their own folder on this server. They are limited to 100MB of disk space. When you try to copy a file over that size, you get the not enough space on disk error.
