WSS/MOSS – Common Issue – Error Message "Unknown compression type in a cabinet folder" during export

Another issue which I have seen a couple of times in the past when using STSADM -o  export or content deployment is a failure during the export phase with the following error message:

Failed to create package file
Unknown compression type in a cabinet folder

In all cases I have seen this problem was caused by insufficient disk space. Please monitor the disk space during the export/compression phase and ensure that sufficient disk space is available to perform this operation.
