This shows the output from the dir command:
Volume in drive Z is dept
Volume Serial Number is 7DA6-7404
Directory of Z:\
06/15/2013 02:24 AM <DIR> .
06/27/2013 01:48 AM <DIR> ..
01/17/2014 11:01 PM <DIR> SW
03/18/2014 09:42 PM <DIR> QA
0 File(s) 0 bytes
4 Dir(s) 1,009,809,938,155,520 bytes free
Note all those free bytes. Perhaps the problem is with more than 1PiB
of free space.
