    and have been for over 12 months but as of today when i try to save it won't let me. if i try to save to my documents it says
    save failed due to out of memory or disk space
    (C:\...\My Documents\)
    if i try to save to afloppy it says disk is full or too many files are open . The only file open is the one i'm trying to save and the floppy is a brandnew empty one. PLEASE HELP!!!

    It probably still needs hard drive space for file cache

    Can you check how much hard drive space you actually have, and post back here?

    You have told us you are using Office 2000, but not which version of Windows.

    The Ctrl - Alt - Del for task manager is specific to some versions of Windows only.

    What version do you run? (Remember Windows is entirely separate from Office)

    If you're using Windows XP, that part is not as important...just skip it.

    I'm running windows 2000 pro.
    The only thing that i have not been able to save is word. I've tried saving excel and others and have had no trouble at all.

    Dreamboat does it again,
    How do you do it?
    New to windows 2000 myself and had previously used 98. Didn't know win 2000 was also naughty with those temporary files.
    You must be on steroids or something.
    Still whatever it is keep taking it, it's really useful for the ning nongs in the normal world.
    Sorry to interrupt someone else's thread but thought it might help a new member to know that they are not alone with this one.

    Thanks woder. Truth is, up until last May, I did software support over the phone for big companies. Before long, all that technology will have been replace, and my brain will be out of date--at least in the troubleshooting areas. It is kind of funny. There's bunches of people out there who know "how to", but not "how to fix". I've got Office 2003 installed. It's not looking pretty. I'll probably fade with that one... They've put so much crap in it that I cannot imagine the average Word user using...much less the other apps. Thanks for your kind words. ;)

    You'll never be out of date for me Dreamboat!!
    I'll bet you are already making short work out of the tragedy of the new software version.
    You're quite right though; without the "fix it" family of knowledge the newer versions of software are always strange logics for progress.

    big mama, i think the "task manager" button is the one that will display your task list. Worked for me and I found 319 temporary files.

    It may not be this, as Dreamboat pointed out, but she has an uncanny knack of providing knowledge that can't be found anywhere else. Maybe that is why she is one of my favourite people. If this is not your problem the forum will soon find what it is. Sometimes it's the process of ruling things out that makes for the most effective form of help.

    Lots of luck, big mama, Win 2000 does seem to be more stable than Win 98. Hope you find your problem soon.
