Low Disk Space "Temporary File Space Error"

Q: Low Disk Space "Temporary File Space Error"

 I have a computer that has their "c: drive" almost full (221 gb drive). Every time it boots a message comes up saying "Windows created a temporary paging file on your computer because of a problem that occurred with your paging file configuration when you started your computer. The total paging file size for all disk drives may be somewhat larger than the size you specified." So first I tried adjusting the Virtual Memory BUT, I only have a drive C and a previous drive that is no longer there. So I am not for sure what drive to set my virtual memory to because there is not enough space on C drive with it being almost completely full and the one drive is non-existent. I am sure its a easy fix and im missing a step but i appreciate the help guys   Thanks!

Preferred Solution: Low Disk Space "Temporary File Space Error"

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Low Disk Space "Temporary File Space Error"

I would type Run in the search box. Start it and then in the Run box type %temp%. This will open up the temp folder for the current user. These files are safe to delete. Log in to every other user and use the same command. Once those are deleted, use Ccleaner to clear all the browser cache then set the Paging file to 1.5 times the RAM on the system.

Since upgrading to windows 10 from 7 a few months ago I have been unable to use edge or cortana.
Edge will sometimes load a website but VERY slowly - about 10 mins. Chrome works fine.
All other aspects of the upgrade work fine.
The only strange thing I have noticed is that in Internet Options the Temporary Internet File location is blank and Disk space set to 0. I can not change either of them.
I have tried resetting w10 apps and resetting explorer - no change.
Any ideas anyone?

A:Internet Options Temporary File location blank, Disk Space 0

I used it for a while, to watch American Football, but it freezes to much so I dumped it for Chrome wich has not these problems.

I done a lot of reading on this topic but everything i try does not seem to help, now i found this really nice topic from HP to fix this problem. But the main problem is after i done what they said it did not look like i have anything to delete in the Recovery D, So i am not 100% so could someone tell me if there is anything that can be deleted in my recovery D i will show the Image of it.


Here is a link to photobucket showing the recovery D full.

Now is there anyway to solve this problem ?

A:Error: Low Disk Space. You are running out of disk space on Recovery (D:) For Vista,

Hi and welcome

We could use a screen shot of the drive D partition but probably your backups are stored there and you can delete the oldest to free up some space. Make sure you have another before you delete it. That partition is tiny bTW 9 gigs is way too small to be effective.

We just placed a new Dell Dimension. It has a 40 Gig hard drive.

User keeps getting this message:




This machine has over 30 gigs of free space. It's impossible that there is a disk space issue.

Any ideas what could be causing this? Some sort of mis-communication or setting?


A:Disk Space Error - 30 Gigs free space

It should be a configuration setting. I'd call Dell if you just got this machine. Their "english" is a little suspect though. It sounds like some hokey Dell software reminding you to back up your drive. When does the message appear? After it boots?

I have just finished installing "Sony Vegas Pro 8.0". When I click on setup file it says, "There was an error reading this install package. The install package is either corrupt or your temporary folder is out of disk space."

A:Temporary folder is out is disk space :(

I recommend you clean out the temp files and give it another try. That will tell you whether ts due to a full temp file or possibly a corrupt install package. You should clean out the temp files periodically anyway, just good maintenance practice.

I recommend the use of ATF Cleaner. A small efficient utility/ Very useful. And its FREE

I'm hoping somebody can help me, with some weird behavior in IE11, we have been running IE9 due to some legacy web applications but are now in the stages of upgrading to IE11.
Once I have ran the installer and upgraded to IE11 and log on with the account that ran it (user 1) everything works fine as expected.
When I log on with another domain account (user 2) they experience issues where websites can't cache, so they are unable to open pdf documents some web applications won't run etc.
If I rollback to IE9 everything works as expected for all users.
I've narrowed this down to the section in internet options\browser history\Temporary Internet Files. The files setting gets set to blank and disk space to 0 after user 2 logs in. However if user 2 presses the view files button it takes the to the correct
folder. Permissions of the folder is authenticated users full control which has historically been fine with older versions of IE.

I've tried changing different things in the registry but nothing seems to work.

Machine and user have been removed from all group policy and in case of a conflict but still persists. I've also tried logging in with domain admin but that also shows the same in the temporary internet files folder.

Has anyone else experienced this?

This is a problem I see from time to time and I would like some insight into how and why it happens and how I might set up a machine to prevent it from happening.

I will examine IE's settings and it will be configured to use a certain amount of disk space for Temporary Internet Files, let's say about two Gigabytes. When examining the size of the Temporary Internet Files\Content.ie5 folder, it may be as much as double or even ten times the space allocated in the IE settings.

How does this happen?

Can it be prevented?

A:How does IE track and allocate Temporary Internet Files disk space?

As near as I can tell, the parent folder Temporary Internet Files is what is affected by the setting in Internet options. The Content IE5 folder will keep creating subfolders with no apparent limit. I've never checked the max size of the subfolders but I suspect each will reach the size limit set in the Options and then another subfolder gets created. How to prevent it is a good question that I don't know the answer to. I have cleanups scheduled to delete the whole mess on a regular basis. That's the best solution I have.

OK, I have run out of ideas and things to check. I have a 90gb hard drive (internal), it's got about 45gb free. I have defragged, I have deleted tons of temp files, and other files, etc. Still I cannot save or move a 190 KB sized file. I keep getting 'not enough free space on the disk' message.

This is already an NTFS device, and the file doesn't exceed a fat32 size anyway, so that's not the issue I am facing.

I have closed down all programs, except the app I am using to try to create and then save this file (it's like Microsoft Office, plain text or excel file format just using Sun's StarOffice instead), I have rebooted numerous times all to no avail.

Anybody have any other ideas on why I am still getting this message and cannot save any files?? Any help or info greatly appreciated.

Above is the folder where it says their is not enough space in temp folders, im using nerovision to burn a personal avi video to dvd and i keep getting this message. anything i can do? instructions would be great also.


A:ERROR: not enough space for temporary files in specified folders when burning dvd?

How much space do you have left on your C drive?
I'm not sure of an exact figure, but for a full DVD, you should have at least 5-10 GB free space. It's best to have a second drive installed for Video editing.
If you have other partitions or another drive, you can tell Nero to cache files there. In Nero, you would change this by going to Configure, and selecting the Cache tab.

Am I the only one to notice and complain over this in W8.1.

This morning a new Adobe Flash update has appeared, KB3079777. The update is sized at 17.9mb. Nothing is running on the PC, its idle and with no disk activity. Free space is 55.4GB. I apply the update and free space immediately falls to 54.9gb. This behaviour is consistent with every such patch applied. Now over time, that space will return which suggests that something else is going on here. But what ?

A:Free disk space & space used by a single Flash Update.

Looks like it is just me then. Today brought a 4.6Mb W8.1>W10 computability update. My free space changed from 55.2Gb to 54.7Gb.

Sounds about right. Ho hum....

Hello to all.

I have a problem with my windows 7 pro laptop that shows only 7,49/100 GB free memmory. I tried to delete all shadow copies and previous versions. Also did chckdsk /f which give me 0 errors, tried to search in hidden and OS files, but there arent any big files, diskcleanup with system files cleaned about 1 gb.
Then I downloaded winDirStat which shoved me that I only have 43Gb of data on my c: drive. I don't have any ideas what could be done to increase free disk space. Please help

A:Windows show low disk space, win dir stat shows different space

In My Computer, click the Tools menu then on Folder Options then click the View tab and tick "Show hidden files and folders" then untick "Hide protected system files and folders", click Apply and OK.

Then, go into c:\ windows and delete all the files in blue which statr with a $ symbol. They are only folders that once contained Windows Updates you no longer need to keep. Then scroll down to the Software Distribution folder and to Download. Empty that folder.

Look in Control Panel>Power options and make sure Hibernation is turned off then in System, adjust the size of System Restore so it takes up only 4% of the disk space.

Restart the computer and see hwo much space you freed up.

Setting up a new box, Vista sadly to say. Installed MS Office XP Pro and get the following error when closing MS Word ONLY. Excel saves without any errors.

The disk is full. Free some space on this drive, or save the document on another disk. Try one of the following:

Now this thing has a 250 gig drive but it is also used for security in a mini mart with 8 cameras. There are about 145 Gigs of video from the security cameras on this box. At this time I am just setting it up, no cameras are connected, and the security program hasn't been set up yet. I just moved the files from the old drive to this one. BTW the old drive crashed.

First do you want to increase recovery space?
System Restore - disk space

Although this says for Windows Seven this his how you delte Restore points.
System Protection Restore Points - Delete - Windows 7 Forums

Try to increase space, if possible. Deleting the points will decrease the protection that system restore offers.

To be sure that you are not having things put on the hard drive that should not be there
Run a full and updated anti virus scan
Download and run a full malwarebytes scan. Update it first.

This article, especially the System Restore Portion, will explain about space being used

You may want to download Ccleaner to clean up files
Download it and then ask how to set it, so that you get a full yet safe cleaning. It should be used on a regular basis.

7.5 GB of disk space has gone missing from my C: drive.
It's really frustrating - my C: drive is only 20 GB to start with and I now have only 500 MB free, so I really need to figure out what's going on.

Windows Explorer shows C: drive properties of 20 GB disk size and 500 MB free.
I have made hidden files visible. If I add up all the folders under the C: drive they come to 12 GB (almost all in C:\windows).
I have my virtual memory set to all go to the D: drive. My recycling bin is empty. I have set System Restore to use zero disk space. I ran chkdsk and all looked OK.

I ran "disktective" and it shows that I have a single file in the C:\ directory that is 7.5 GB in size, but doesn't tell me what that file is or how I can get rid of it.
I tried "attrib -s | findstr SHR" but didn't turn up anything significant.

The reason I'm creating a new thread about this is because all the threads I've searched through on Google seem to state the solution to the issue being that the OP is transferring a file over 4GB onto a FAT32 file system - obviously not going to work.

I'm transferring only 100MB of data to FAT32 where there is like 16GB free.
I'm totally lost here.
My iPod does it sometimes too--but only for data transfer, not like in Winamp or anything.

But that's not really the issue. My external is a Cirago 80GB and I formatted in to FAT32 for use with my Wii. So. Yeah.

I am having a big problem with my HD not regaining space after I delete files. Sometimes it will empty random amounts when I delete a file (like 500MB when I delete 2GB) The left over amount wont be freed by the system for as much as 2-3 days.

This is causing great problems because when I go to uninstall a program to install another the space doesnt free up and I can't install the new program until the space frees up.

I am on a toshiba satellite laptop running windows xp pro, I have it set so the recycling bin is skipped and files are directly deleted.

If any more information is needed just ask and I will post it asap.

I recently replaced a 60GB SSD because my winsxs file was using over 25GB and I was down to about 8GB of usable space. I went out and bought an 80GB SSD and after my install it was already half full before I put any application on it.

I also run a 64GB Fedora system on a 60GB drive and I'm not even close to using half of it. Why is Windows 7 so demanding on disks?

Hi Guys
I have a problem with Internet Explorer 6.
If I go into Tools/Internet options/Temp internet Files/settings, there is a slider that allows you to adjust the amount of disk space the system lets you allocate to temp internet files, and two little scroll arrows.
Mine is now set at zero, and if I try to change it an error boc comes up saying it must be set between 1 and 0. It will not let me set it at 1 or 0, and I can only get out of it by hitting the cancel button. The file is completely empty and will not keep cookies or anything.
Any ideas?

A:XP Error - low disk space

I'm having problems with my laptop and a "low disk space'' error.

The laptop is a netbook with 8GB of memory. Recently I started getting the error message and I don't know why. I only use the netbook for online surfing. I have very few files on the computer. The only programs I have loaded onto the computer are:

AVG Anti-virus
Super Anti-Spyware
VLC Media Player

My "my documents" only has 540 kb worth of files in it.

When I started getting the error message my meomory would go from 400 mb to 600 mb and then back to 400 mb. It was never consistent. All of a sudden I know have 0 mb memory. I can't run disk cleanup because I don't have enough memory. I also can't defragment becasue of low memory. Now, all of a sudden I can't get updates for AVG because of "no disk space." I also can't get any more progams like Ccleaner. I can't seem to do anything. It has even suspended my "system restore" because of low space. The performance has slowed immensely in the past day too. What could be causing this? I have wiped all the temporary files, recycling bin, etc. I just don't get it. I haven't been downloading anything and my AVG scans come back fine.

When I look at my "add/remove progams" I can clearly see that the total of the programs is well short of 8GB.

Can someone please help me!?!?!!? This is driving me crazy and I can't do anything at the moment. I appreciate any help I can get.

Check your windows folder. It is possible that the remaining hard drive space was used up by installing windows updates. Mostly likely you are going to have to manually delete some files and folders(not recommended that you delete stuff from inside the windows folder if you don't know what to delete)...empty your recycle bin then try disk clean up

Posting this here because I think it's an installshield problem rather than being directly related to Games.


To start with, specs:

Vista 32bit Home Edition SP1
2x Seagate Sata HDs, 300 and 320gb EDIT: Actually, I'm not sure exactly how big they are, but they're in that vicinity.
Partitioned as shown in this screenshot:

C: is for OS, E: is where I store everything I download / create before organising it into D: or F: . All HDs are NTFS.

I recently reformatted D: and I'm in the process of reinstalling my games when I come across this error. It says I have insufficient memory when I try to install on D: or F: yet I clearly do (as can be seen in the screenshot).

I thought maybe it was the game (FEAR) so I tried with an older game, Baldur's Gate and I get the same problem.

Screenshots of what is going on:
This is the baldur's gate error message, I've included how much space it's saying that I have left as well. This is trying to install on D:

This is the same thing but trying to install on F:

To show that this isn't just Baldur's Gate, here's the error message from trying to install F.E.A.R.

I've been downloading my steam games as well and it doesn't seem to have any problem with this. (Each game is gb's of space). It seems to me to be a problem with InstallShield.

Any advice is appreciated!

A:Not Enough Disk Space Error

Older installers don't know how to deal with large hard drives. The simplest solution is to create a small partition (I'd try something under 4gb). There are some alternatives, like reducing the disk space by filling your disk up with a very large file (I think that there are programs that will do this for you just to solve this problem) or using a virtual partition (TrueCrypt does this but for a different purpose).

I have a 100GB hard drive and windows XP keeps recognizing it as being full. When I view drive C it says that it has all of its 88GB filled. The interesting thing is that when I do a CTRL A of all of its contents, the size is only 20GB. My computer is free of movies and music with the exception of a few gigs of photos and small programs. System speed is fine and I do not believe that my system has any sort of malicious files on it. I have tried just about everything.

I still have 23 GB left on my hard drive but it drops down to zero.
I don't put anything on my hard drive but it reads 0 GB then this low disk space error pops up.
I restart my PC then it goes back up to 23 GB then after a few minutes it is back to 0 again.
So I scan my hard drive with Norton 2011 and it shows that there's no virus detected.
I used CHKDSK command but it's still there.
Could this be just an error or something seriously wrong, please help...

A:Low Disk Space Error

Check your virtual memory settings.

1) Right-click in My Computer and select Properties

2) Click on the Advanced tab

3) Under Performance, click on the Settings button

4) Click on the Advanced Tab

5) Look at "Total paging file size for all drives"

If it's set to more than 6 GB (assuming you're running 32 bit WinXP), adjust it down to 1.5x the amount of RAM your PC has. Example: Set it to 3072 MB if you have 2 GB of RAM.

When you click the change button, you'll have different options. Select Custom Size. Then, for example, enter 3072 MB for initial and 4096 MB for max. Click Set. Then, keep clicking OK until all of the Windows you just opened are closed.

Let me know if this resolves your problem.

Disk space error keep popping up even though i have enough disk space on My Computer.
the problem started when i tried to do a back up.I cleared this problem a while back.
forgot and tried to do a backup It started all over again. Also forgot how I corrected this problem.

A:Low disk space error

Have you backed up onto D system restore.Because this is normaly low on space anyway and should not be used for back up,s just system restore points.A lot of people make this mistake.

Greetings all -

New to the forum, so I hope this isn't a redundant question...

3 of my users are getting low disk space messages. The PCs are less than 2 months old, have the most recent updates to McAfee SC... Cleared all temp files. Noticed that all of the 'data' that is filling up the HDD is in C:\Windows. However, I don't see any files or folders that appear to be out of the norm.
