Public bug reported:

With the default Ubuntu install you cannot snap Files to the side of the
screen on a 1366x768 screen. An application won't snap if it cannot be
resized to half the screen size, and the minimum width of Files is
clearly slightly larger than this.

Adjusting the minimum width by a few pixels would seem to be the best
option (that may be subjective). This may, however, be considered also
as a side effect of the Ubuntu Dock down the left hand side, which
reduces the effective screen width. An alternative fix is to reduce the
icon size of the dock from 48 to 46 as this allows enough width for
Files to now snap to the sides. Visually there is little difference, but
48 very much feels the right number (it matches native icon image sizes,
etc.), so unless a more drastic change to 32 makes sense, I would
suggest the preferred fix is to adjust Nautilus/Files - other docks used
on the side would presumably have similar problems with a commonly used
size for larger icons.
