    Out of drive space on domain?

    Hi there

    Recently people who are trying to save files to their Desktop and sometimes even their shared area are getting an error message saying that there is insufficient disk space... although on the Data Drive on the server which houses everyone's personal folders etc, there is 39 GB free!

    I'm completely confused, I've tried everything!

    Do you have quotas?

    @Samson: right-click on drive letter -> Properties -> Quota Tab

    Re: Out of drive space on domain?

    It sounds like a quota problem. If disk quota is set, it will even affect shared resources - it is the user's disk quota so it doesn't matter where they save to, it is still their quota of available disk space getting used up. We've had this a lot, and it threw me totally the first time; we were supposed to get a meaningful message when disk quota got low but it never came, just a random error message about being unable to save!
