When you download a file and you click Save This Program To Disk in the File Download dialog box, you may receive the following error message:
Error Copying File: Cannot copy file: File system error (1026)
This behavior can occur if you do not have enough disk space on the drive that contains the Temporary Internet Files folder.
To resolve this behavior, use one of the following methods:
Files that you download are first stored in the Temporary Internet Files folder, and then moved to the destination folder.
Note that this error message can also appear if the server has problems sending the file because of security issues or network traffic. In this case, the file is never created in the cache because of the bad transfer.
