rbutilqt (v1.0.6-64bit) says "zlib library error" when disk of player is full.
This is an incorrect error and the real problem should be better communicated to the user.

Reason for closing:  Fixed
Additional comments about closing:  Rockbox Utility now checks if the drive has enough space (plus some safety, as running out of disk space can cause weird effects in Rockbox).

The message is the error that gets reported by the used unzip class ( As zlib is causing the error the message is in fact correct, though I agree that it doesn't give a "user-compatible" hint about the reason. This should get improved.
