Installtion space issues.

Since repartition my hard drive into one 2gig and one 4gig partition and converting to SFS, some software has been giving me problems installing.

Both TFX and Canon Print Studio are telling me that I do not have enough space free, even though both drives are pretty empty.

What can I do?

I would think that even a buggy installer would install into a small 2gig partition...

The smaller partition is probably a little bit bigger than 2GB resulting in the free space value being a negative number. The same applies to a partition which is a bit smaller than 4GB.

Solution: fill it up with files until less then 2GB remains free.

It only takes 4 Amiga games to fill 800MB.
Aqua
Genetic Species
Labyrinth of Time
Total Chaos

That leaves you room to add another 20 or 30 games.
