Had a server 2003 home edition, motherboard went bad, need to copy files to an external drive in order to backup before reinstalling server 2003 home. I have a 320gb hard-drive that the files exist on but there are folders on the drive that are reporting 3.2tb of data.
these contain movies and backup's, etc... I get an error that states there is not enough disk space t copy.

Did you have a Windows Home Server (based on Windows Server 2003) with multiple hard drives installed? If so, you may be out of luck. WHS uses a technology called drive extender (see here for more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Home_Server). Basically, this takes all of your HDDs and "combines" them into one large DATA disk. I have a WHS system with 8TB of storage spread across 6 HDDs.

It appears that you are trying to access one of the drives from that shared volume. Is that correct?
