    WTF, "cannot copy *****" error message from MS?

    You have a file named **** that you can't copy because there's no space on the destination drive.
    I've set this up as a prank on someone else's machine before, using a large partition image file (some 700MB or so) that I knew they wouldn't be able to copy.
    Find out what that file is and how large it is and remove it.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    What a coincidence, I done a search on "sh1t" and found 2 files with that name...and guess what one is 10KB and the other is 8KB.

    It had to run out of space while copying that file to give me shock. I though my PC been hacked...was about to rebuild

    There used to be a small TSR program for DOS that, when you entered a bad command or an error would otherwise be thrown, it would lip back at you with some snide statement instead of the bland old crap errors.

    It was funny as hell, and I would love to see a Windows version that did something like what this poor fella just ran into, although intentionally instead of using a filename like "sh1t"!
