Emergency Repair Disk

By aduran ·
I am trying to create an ERD on all my Win NT workstation thru the Utility (with no switches). It is working fine on some PCs but other PC's give me a message stating "Repair Disk Could not copy all files to the Emergency Disk. The ERD is full. The configuration files were saved in your hard disk."

I thought that an ERD was supposed to fit on a floppy. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Not necessarily.
If you have too much data for the ERD to fit on a floppy, it will build C:\WINNT\REPAIR folder, where it copies the ERD contents.
Then, if you need to rebuild the server, you need the ERD floppy AND this directory to do the whole repair thing.
On my PDC with 100+ users, it does not fit on the floppy.
So, this is normal, unfortunately.

Go to this page for more info on ER

hope this helps
