Why can't OS pre-guess space on floppy?

Every time I copy to floppy (in 98+ & w2k) if data is too much for available space (even if floppy's blank) it waits till half way through before letting me know there's not enough space. Why can't the os pre-guess like Mac's? I miss that.

You'll have to ask Bill Gates
