Image Capture.app not saving scanned images?

Software

I was going mad trying to figure out why Image Capture.app wasn't saving any images from my scanner this afternoon. Turns out the destination drive I'd selected was completely out of of drive space. I would have appreciated at least some error or warning from either the Finder or Image Capture, but at least I figured it out eventually!

Passing this nugget of information on for what it may be worth if you're having/had/sandwich a similar issue.
