Error when restoring a WSS3 site via SPD

  Date: Nov 01    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 609

This has happened before, but for the life of me, I can't figure out why.
When I back up and restore a site (using the SharePoint Designer menu
commands), I'm told that the restore failed because the process "could not
find file c:\WINDOWS\TEMP\GIANTGUID\exportsettings.xml".

I know this can happen when the site is over 25MB but the site in question
is less than 4MB. I have a couple of lists, maybe 30 separate code files
(aspx/js/css), and a library which contains maybe 500kB worth of Office
documents. I'd rather not have to do the cab-maker dance every time we
need to go through this. Any thoughts?

Oh, and we have virtually no logging or debugging available; this is a
shared hosted environment for the client of a client.
