Whoops

just checked my account and ive used 60% of my peak usage... oh dear never got that far in a fair few months now.
11gb on peak usage is a bit high for me dont even know what i downloaded..i know i wasted 15gb of bandwidth on 3 corrupt Runes of Magic Installs...
anyone else had a 'Whoops' moment?

Re: Whoops

About 3 years ago, I downloaded the MSDN library (4.3Gb) ISO onto an external HD (80Gb at the time I think).
Wondered why the download screwed up just before it finished Angry
The drive had plenty of space.
It had a FAT32 and NTFS partition, and I had tried to save it on the FAT32 one.
Took me ages to realise why, but Google the maximum file size limit on FAT32 and you'll see Grin
