    oracle 9i database full while inserting lines

      i wanna copy data from a table to another one (same structure, only difference is that the second table is partitioned).
      the origin table consists of about millions of lines
      so i made an insert : insert into table2 select * from table1.
      the insertion doesn't end correctly : TOAD crashes, any line was inserted in table2 : select * from ...etc. However, the file system becomes full.
      i would if there is a way to purge something like cache ..., are these lines inserted somewhere : temporary table..., so i can reduce filesystem size.
