Are you sure that free space is on the same partition that the broker
uses for messages? The broker will report the relevant location as
"database dir" in the logfile when starting up. You can also obtain this
by running

  rabbitmqctl eval 'rabbit_mnesia:dir().'

The broker uses the last line of this command to determine free space:

  dir /-C /W (followed by the database directory)

What is the last line when you run this with the database drive from the
previous step?
