I selected (too) many folders and chose the Export to CD/DVD option. Several minutes passed as Lightroom 4.1 prepared the files for export—and built a very large file. I suddenly got a flurry of messages from Lightroom 4.1 that my drive was full and to free up 20GB of disk space. My attempts to terminate the Export to CD/DVD were in vain as I was met with a constant stream of 'disk full' messages from Lightroom 4.1 I used Force Quit to terminate Lightroom 4.1 Using Disk Inventory X and was able to find and delete the huge file created by Lightroom 4.1 I think it would be good to include in Lightroom's 'disk full' message a way for the user of Export to CD/DVD to terminate the export process, delete the export file and suggest selecting fewer files to export.
