Item3595: Better error message for zero file size attachment
Item Form Data
Feedback in TWiki:Support/AttachFailureErrorMessage
This is more of a suggestion to improve an existing error message. When an attachment attempt fails, it generates the following error:
Either you did not specify a file name, or the file you are trying to upload C:\My Documents\SomeDocumentName.xls has no content. You may not upload an empty file.
In our case, this happened not because the file had size zero but rather the temporary file that the "upload" script creates (during http copy?) had a zero file size.
This happened because /tmp on the Linux server machine was full. But it took us a while to figure out that this was the problem.
Can this error message be augumented to suggest to the user that the local tmp drive on the server machine might be full? This would allow the local twiki administrator to quickly latch on to the problem.

This is not a documentation problem. It is in the code that you need to add additional intelligence and create multiple error messages depending on coded conditions.
Low priority though.
