I noticed emule had put my active downloads on pause. I kept starting them up, then they'd pause again. Figured out that the smaller of my two external drives (which my shared folder is on) had filled up. Only about 72 MB of space left. I always transfer files over to my big drive when space gets low for the mule. It's never gotten that full before. The program was telling me "No more room!" ... in its own vague, not really telling you way.

Sorry about that. Problem was on my end. They're downloading okay now.

@deadman, you're running those hard drives on red-99% capacity like me!

So I'm lucky that I store all my movies on my 12 TB NAS ;)

Don't do that with solid state of course! Very bad for solid state to be near full!

Why?
They do something called "wear levelling" - writing data to different areas each write and re-write so as to balance the write cycles of any particular area. Some new drives can do a million writes, but older ones could only do about 1000 write cycles reliably. If you leave the drive 95% full then it's continuously writing and re-writing the same 1/20th of the drive - even worse if it's a boot drive with a swap file on it.
There'll be lots more info on the internet on this. Try searching on "Solid state write cycles and reliability" or limitations.

I think that is not 100% correct. Writes are AFAIK still spread evenly across the whole disk, but if the disk is full, it has to move existing data from one physical block to another, so writes are slower. If the disk is empty, it just uses the free blocks.
