Bug: Error handling when saving device full

Post by BRotondi » Thu Nov 22, 2012 11:15 pm

Hi Alex

I saved an image to a HD with not enough free space and got the error message.

In Windows 8 this message is hidden, so I didn't realized it and tried to recover the bad image to another stick.

I got no error message and the stick even seems to work since only a little bit is missing...

Best regards,
Bruno

Did you start USB Image Tool from the new Metro surface or from desktop? How exactly the message is hidden?

Doubleclick on the exe.

I had this issue also with other programs. Windows 8 seems to handle this in a quite stupid way:
- The message windows is created but instead of putting it all on top or at least over the program window, it gets level 0 so it won't apear until you hover over the taskbar entry or press it.
- Seems to be a Windows 8 Bug which will be changed someday

(Windows 8 Pro, 64 bit, all Online-Updates)
