    MS Publisher 2000 - Disk Full error

    Getting this with a lot of kids here that when they go to save their work to any drive they get a "Disk Full" error even though there is plenty of space on the destination drives

    This happens on XP machines (mix of SP1 and SP2)

    Anyone come across this before?

    Yes, I've seen a thread about this on the LancsNGFL Technical Forums. Basically, Publisher uses the old windows API for file operations. If you have too much free disk space the counter rolls round and goes negative.

    I've encountered the same thing here but have never found a reason for it.

    You are not trying to use a memory stick with Publisher 2000 as that causes strange errors as it does not support USB memory sticks

    Re: MS Publisher 2000 - Disk Full error

    Not using pen drives, pupils have to save to their Home drive - setup with quota's depending on their year (50MB for Y7&Y8, 100MB for Y9, 150MB for Y10 & 200 MB for Y11)

    These drives all have enough space, nor can they save to a partition on the hard drive which we tried setting up to see if it was the netowrk side that caused the problems, Pen drives have also been tried on one pupil but didnt work either.

    Looking into whether the kids have to use O2K or if we can move them over to O2k3...

    Anyone know if GCSE work must be done in Office 2000?

    Quota's confuse publisher.

    Re: MS Publisher 2000 - Disk Full error

    Sounds right with regards to what geoff said ( Just curious though ) the drive(s) that the kids or whomever are trying to save to , is it a shared area on the server ( I think thats how you say it or what you call it lol ).

    Also what about if you try and get them to save it to a floppy disk just to see if it is to do with the quota issue because obviously a floppy disk is a reasonable size.

    Re: MS Publisher 2000 - Disk Full error

    Are there any patches or updates for office or publisher that would fix that ?

    Really, TBH, I would retire office 2000, there is no good reason to still be using it, we used to use Pub 2K, Office xp, and Outlook 2003 all merged into one big mess. Soon ditched it for 2003, far simpler

    The pupils drives are mapped to \\file-server\%username%\ which is a 250GB HDD on the server. - only used about 30GB of the disk !
    Also what about if you try and get them to save it to a floppy disk just to see if it is to do with the quota issue because obviously a floppy disk is a reasonable size.
    Yeah tried to save to various places - no effect
    -Local Hard Disk
    -Non Quota'd share
    -Pen Drive

    Yeah I'm gonna try and push to get things upgraded to Office 2003, ICT Teachers will probably moan about it, but if its a choice between that and the kids losing their GCSE work....

    Re: MS Publisher 2000 - Disk Full error

    I would push for an upgrade maybe at Easter or Summer to Office 2003, the changes that we got the most "issues" with were the clip art (or the lack of it built in to office) but as we have the internet its easily solved, the reading layout is still fairly well hated, but appart from that, its all been a great upgrade. Also Access starts in Access 2000 mode not 2003 (unless you modify it) so no database issues either.
