Introduction

There is not enough space on the disk.

This is a general error that can occur in many situations.

Workstation side problems

The simplest situation is where the user’s C:\ drive is full. A quick solution is to use the DISK CLEAN up tool to free up some space. However, more problems will be experienced until a better solution to free up space on this drive can be found.

Run disk cleanup

Windows XP

Disk cleanup can be found in the accessories menu under system tools.

Windows 7

As with Windows XP, Disk cleanup can be found in the accessories menu under system tools.
You can also search for Disk cleanup in the start menu by typing “disk cleanup” and press enter.

 

Suggested boxes to tick:

·         Recycle Bin

·         Temporary files

·         Per user queued Windows Error Reporting (Windows 7 and Vista only)

Note: Do not compress old files (Windows XP)

Cleaning the CCS temporary area

 

Hard drive quota

Server side problems

The third situation is where a user is restricted because of a share on the server.  

Other Things to try

Candy makes a daily backup for each job (on first access). This takes up quite a bit of space. It can be turned off on the job manager.
