Out of disk space?
Networked backup folder not available?

That was it. My zip-drive was almost completely filled. But wouldn't it be easier if Citydesk would tell me that something is wrong with the available space on a drive?

Ah, you don't like the ~ 's ?

I admit it's stupid. I would also like to announce that it's a Microsoft error message we display as-is. Normally when there's an out of disk space error, they provide a useful error message. But often what happens the code that loads the error message *itself* is actually failing because the system is out of memory...
