I cannot copy files larger than 4Gb to my Pi running Raspbmc using a Samba share. I get a message saying there is not enough space left on the destination, but that's not true. The client accessing the share is a Mac and the target filesystem is a ext3 USB drive.

How can I configure this Samba share to accept large files?

    How is the samba share mounted? If you haven't specified that the filesystem is ext3 then it may not have large file support enabled by default. – Jivings Nov 18 '12 at 19:09
  • did you check the actual space left on the device? I had similar issues, and found that the pi was leaking memory after some dirty shutdowns. – Batsu May 22 '13 at 13:50
