    The error message from the backup utility is that the drive "is not
    having enough space" rather than "does not have enough space" -- typical
    Indian English.

    I would imagine that's American English, not Indian English which really is
    English English :)

    Does the "OK" button actually say "Do the needful"?

    Hahaha...that's funny! So the Italian was right when he named you
    "Indians"! That means it took you about 10,000 years and a lost Italian
    to know what you were!
    Amazing!
