Although my control panel shows that my hard drive is less than half full whenever I try to download something from email to a floppy disk I get an error message that there is not enough memory on my hard drive to accomplish the task and that I should free up some space. However, if I chose to download the very same material to "download" on my hard drive I have no problem. Why is this happening?

Welcome to the board schnauzer.

The file probably trys to go to a temporary internet directory before being sent to the floppy. If that is too full it could explain the problem you are having.

Try either emptying your Temporary Internet Folder through Internet Options, or doing a "Disk Cleanup" through Programs/Accessories/System Tools

Although I can't really explain why the same error wouldn't occur downloading direct to the hard drive, unless it depends on which TIF folder is involved.

There is no such thing as memory on a hard drive. Memory and hard drives are two completely different things.

What is the EXACT wording of the error?

hi ... welcome to Tech Guy Forum

Rollin' Rog I think is write... you need to clean your cache out so it can go to the temporary file .

In regards to: Memory and Hard Drive are TWO different things.

Not having enough SPACE on the HDD and not having enough MEMORY on the HDD is kinda the same. Unless it was not a message about space.
