I do a lot of my web development in Notepad++ on a Windows XP machine. The development happens on a remote server (Windows 2003) used for a variety of jobs, so it often fills up.
When the hard drive is full and I save a file, I do not receive any sort of error in Notepad++. Everything appears to save normally from the application. However, the text file save as an empty file, likely because there is no space to save the changes.
I usually catch the problem when I refresh my web browser and see a blank webpage. Occasionally though, I close the file after a quick edit, and if the data was not saved, it is lost.
Is there a setting in Notepad++ to alert me if the file was not saved correctly? Is this something that should be checked at the OS level?
