KTorrent file size limit


Ktorrent seems to think there's a file size limitation - which prevents a download. There's plenty of space on the drive. Is there any way to fix this?

What is the output of
Code:
fdisk -l /dev/sdX
Where X is your problem disk. You will need to be root for this command.

Disk /dev/sda1: 15.7 GB, 15726703104 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 1911 cylinders, total 30716217 sectors

This doesn't look like a partition table
Probably you selected the wrong device.

Partition table entries are not in disk order

Something I noticed - it shows only 3.7 Gb left of space on the partition for linux. However, the torrent files aren't supposed to be stored there.

Do 'fdisk -l /dev/sda' and NOT 'fdisk -l /dev/sda1'.

Please use code tags as well.
[ CODE]Your text here.[ /CODE]
Without the spaces in the brackets.

Where have you instructed KTorrent to download the files to?

The default save location is /media/STORAGE1/Video

The folder to store torrent information is /home/scottamead/.kde4/share/apps/ktorrent/

What is the filesystem of the target disk /media/STORAGE1 ??

Perhaps KTorrent is having a hard time traversing the different filesystems?

What does 'df -h /media/STORAGE1' return?

The file system is FAT32. The script returns no such file or directory.
