Comment: BDE Engine (Score 1) 655 655

I reported an issue to our software vendor that their BDE backed application would give an out of disk space error when trying to run a repair on the tables and I was told that I needed to increase the pagefile size! As I understand it, what was actually happening was that I had 4GB free disk space which wrapped the 32bit int, and by increasing the swapfile changed the amount of freespace - Cargo-cult tech support at it's best!
