200 GB drive has room but gzip indicates "No space left on device"


I have a 200 GB drive (E:) that I store ntbackup images on.  After making a
backup image, I use Cygwin to gzip the image and md5sum the tarball.  A few
days ago, gzip started complaining "No space left on device":

    <CVSENV>2006-05-29 12:13:47 Administrator@p42800e /backup/bin/p42800
    $ /usr/bin/gzip '/cygdrive/e/backup/p42800e/p42800e-exchange-2006052
    gzip: /cygdrive/e/backup/p42800e/p42800e-exchange-20060527-230000.bk
f.gz: No space left on device

Cygwin "md5sum" seems to work okay.

The Windows properties dialog for the drive indicates 125 GB used and 61.3
GB available.

I also noticed that Cygwin "df" indicates a large negative number for space
used and a small positive number for space available:

    <CVSENV>2006-05-29 12:14:15 Administrator@p42800e /backup/bin/p42800
    $ df

"cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck.out" is attached FYI.

Any suggestions?
