Prior to Windows NT version 4.0, if the disk partition where the print files were spooled ran out of space, the spooler would generate a pop-up message with the following dialog:
With Windows NT 4.0, a warning is not generated and the document does not print. Additionally, no entry is written to the event log.
Because of changes in the design of the Windows NT 4.0 printing subsystem, the spooler does not attempt to detect when the disk that stores the temporary spool files runs out of space.
