[PLUG] Backup fun

OK, I purchased a Western Digital Element 1TB external backup drive
for my linux server. I have a 300 GB drive to back up, so there's
plenty of room to spare.

But no. When I use rsync to back up the data, it bombs out w/a drive
full error before even completing the first back up- which would be
far less than 1 TB of data.

Since I highly doubt that cluster overhang is an issue, can anyone
else think why this drive would be running into such an error? When I
check it on Windows it reports as a 1 TB drive, so it's unlikely to be
a physical error w/the drive.
