in reply to Strange "There is not enough space on the disk" error (Win32)

cmd.exe has some issues with shell redirection and pipes if the file is not an executable program or a batch file.

Wrap your sample script using pl2bat, and that error goes away.

Hope this helps with your original problem as well... Sample output:
