    Hi, friends

    I'm trying to copy a file server to other, but when I try to copy one
    folder, always show me the next error:

    Error 112 (0x00000070) Copying NTFS Security to Destination Directory.
    \\xxx\xxx. There is not enough space on the disk.

    I'm sure that I've enough space, in fact I try to copy by hand (copy and
    paste) and it works, but robocopy writes in the lag this error.

    What's the matter???

    I just got done trouble shooting this issue and resolving it. Robocopy on
    large jobs uses page file space increasing through the copy operation and
    does not give it back....that is unless you set your page file size large
    enough. Windows 2003 server sp2 up to date with 4 gig ram, dual duo core
    AMD. page file set at about 2-3 gig. 400 gig disk (direct storage, C:\) 1.8
    TB SATA storage array via fiber channel HBA. Ran into this issue repeatedly
    on a 600 gig copy to the 1.8 TB array. FInally did some monitoring. Task
    manager says Page file grew until it reached the limit and then came the
    not enough storage space available to process this command. I set the page
    file at 100 gig just to make sure I had enough and then strangely enough
    the page file did not grow at all and copy operation went though all 609
    Gigs without a hitch. Hope this helps someone out.

    Best regards

    I had similar problems until I disabled the Disk Quotas on the destination
    drive. Though the robocopy is running with my credentials, I've requested
    the Owner be maintained. Here's where the quota becomes the problem.

    I'll turn them back on afterwards and have it rescan.

    I hope this helps.
