Disk full!

I remember a time when I would tease my PC friends with the situation where you try to copy data from one disk to another and there isn't enough space.

Windows will happily copy the data across and then give a 'DisK Full' error. The Mac would tell you at the beginning that there is insufficient space for the copy.

I've just had the same situation with SuperDuper. I just tried to copy 110Meg of data onto a 80Mbyte partition. Three hours later, it tells me the disk is full and it can't proceed!

Okay, I didn't check that there was enough space and I should have but SuperDuper could easily check at the beginning of the copy - could it not?
