Lightroom: Low on space notification when exporting.

Hello

Just bumped into this strange situation. When exporting from some catalog to jpg into disk "X". I got notification that "Your Disk X, to which you are exporting images, is low on space." 

Well ok, it really is ok, BUT in this lightroom notification window there are two options Try again and Cancel. Well the disk was too small and I can't get more space. Then of course I will press Cancel and that just doesn't do anything. Well it does, it pops up the same window back again. I don't know if that Cancel is for each file? Feels stupid to press that cancel for 7000 times. :)

Anyone else have had this kind of "issue"?. I have the latest version of Lightroom subscribtion.

I know I can kill the process or restart my computer etc. It just feels that there should be button "Cancel Export" or something for these situations.

Thanks

Approximately what was your free disk space?

Sorry but I don't know where you are heading with these questions. There was no real problem with space. I runned out of space, that is for sure. But the "problem" is that there was no way out of the "Try again / Cancel" situation. It just felt a bit stupid that was lightroom thinking that I would press over 7000 times "Cancel".  In my opinion there should be also option "Cancel export" or something like that.
