      Hello — I have a small personal NAS — the Seagate “PersonalCloud”  5TB model

      Not sure how this started, but now I am having an issue copying files to it via  windows copy copy command (command prompt)  and/or robocopy  — copy seems to going along when one of the copies fails  with the error text “no space on device”  which make no sense since at the time there were over 4tb on it.  Seagate support  had me do a  “soft” reset, and a “format” of that device, but in each case  the error message still is generated.  Now they want to replace the device —

      Is  this anyway a common problem or a issue this just my device

      In addition it seems thase seagate closed down there forums so there is not an easy way to connect to users with the same hardware

      Not being able to copy after a format implies something is not well.

      If Seagate reckon it’s broken I’d take the replacement.

      cheers, Paul
