ITunes error message: "The iTunes library file cannot be saved. You have exceeded your storage quota on the disk you are attempting to use." What do I do?

I recently started receiving the following iTunes error message when I attempt to update the software on my iPad or iPhone: "The iTunes library file cannot be saved. You have exceeded your storage quota on the disk you are attempting to use."
Any ideas what I need to do? The software won't update on my iPad, and I need to update through iTunes, as my iPad does not have enough free space to use the OTA service.

You need to free up space on your boot drive.
(I am going to ask the mods move this to the MacBook Pro forum.)

    I'm getting a pop up box saying "Sorry, an error has occured. You have exceeded your storage quota" but I'm only at 2GB out of 20GB. Everytime I try to upload more photos I get this pop up. I'm not uploading any big files. I can't even upload 1 file under 1GB. Is there something I can do to fix this issue or is it a Creative Cloud technical issue.

  • Error Message: The iTunes Library file cannot be saved. Unknown Error 13001

    My error message says:
    The iTunes Library file cannot be saved. An Unknown error occurred (13001).
    Ever since I loaded the new 3.0 touch upgrade I have been bombarded by error after error. I have turned off genius which seemed to fix the problem at first but about an hour later the error warning popped up again. I have tried the shift start and selected my library with no improvement. It seems to pop up if I load a new podcast or download something and then fails to download.

    Hmmm, that error message came up a lot with older itunes & Genius, like 8.0 version. But you have 8.2.
    I don't know why it would crash on a download unless it is maybe a permissions problem. The download starts, but permissions make it so it cannot save it at the very end? Make sure you have ownership and full control over your itunes folder and all its subfolders.

    And since you've turned off Genius, try deleting these 2 files
    iTunes Library Genius.itdb
    iTunes Library Extras.itdb
    Restart itunes and see if there is any difference....good luck!

  • Error message -48: The itunes library file cannot be saved.

    Hello,
    When I open up my itunes i get an error message 48 - the itunes library file cannot be saved. All my data is there - music, podcasts etc. Just wondering if this error message means anything, if so what, and what I can do to fix it?
    Thanks!

    I just called Apple Support and I think they helped me, but I'm still waiting to see if the error message returns. I was experiencing the same problem. Whenever I started iTunes, I would get the -48 error message. Everything else was working fine. Apple Support instructed me to delete some files from a folder and restart my pc. I did this and it seems to have worked. The folder is on my C:/ drive. Using Windows Explorer, I went to my C:/ drive and then opened the following folders in this order: "Documents and Settings", "Administrator", "Application Data", "Apple Computer", "iTunes", "iPod Software Updates". Inside the iPod Software Updates folder, I found four files which I deleted. I then emptied my trash can and restarted my pc. After I restarted my pc and opened iTunes, the error message did not come up. So it looks like my problem has been solved. Just some minor glitch having to do with the last update. I should mention that I did just get an iPod Classic 80 gig which replaced my 30 gig iPod Photo which just died.

    The error message I get on my PC is "The ITunes library file cannot be saved" An unknown error occurred (-50)and my music library has disappeared.  I recently tried to copy a CD to my library - it appeared to copy ok but then did not appear in my music library.  The library does not show up even when my iPad is connected to my PC.  My entire library is now held on my iPad and I wish to have it in iTunes so I can sync my iPhone to it as well.  Help?

    Don't know what changed today but it downloaded and installed on the shuffle. So far so good.

  • "The Itunes library file cannot be saved" Error Message (-54) please help!

    Hello, I was loading a music cd onto my itunes library today when I started getting this recurring Error message stating: "The Itunes library file cannot be saved. An unknown error has occurred (-54)"
    It just keeps popping up, and now it let me play anything without getting it. So in a panic I realized that nothing is backed up, so I started backing up my itunes using a blank dvd and even that failed in the middle of burning. I guess it has something to do with the error message?
    This scares me since I'm very careful of the types of discs I put into my Mac, and I know that disc in particular didn't have any kind of virus (its been playing in my car for the last two years actually) and it was burned on my PC using itunes a while back when the system was clean.
    My music is like my life and this message is freaking me out, how do I get rid of the message without damaging my library? or what happened to make it appear?
    I'm afraid of how to proceed next.....Someone please help!

    I suspect some anti-virus software is incorrectly interpreting the rewriting of the file and is causing a problem.
    Either way, you should definitely update your anti-virus software and definitions to the latest, and run a full scan of your system. Then tell the security software not to scan the iTunes itl file/folder.
    If that does not help, you may want to recreate your iTunes library:

    I know this doesn't help you Bud, but I've had this issue for at least the last couple of versions.  If I can ask, what is you enviornment like?  Local PC only, libray saved on another PC/Server? 
    In my case my library is on Windows 2003 server with the share mapped to drive M:  This has worked for many years through both XP and Windows 7 until and update a while ago.

    Hi pholewinski!
    I have a couple of articles for you here that I believe will help you with this issue. The first is an article on advanced troubleshooting, and it can be found here:
    iTunes: Advanced iTunes Store troubleshooting
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ts3297
    If following that article's steps doesn't take care of the issue, you can try the things listed in this article, which is about permissions issues in iTunes:
    iTunes: Missing folder or incorrect permissions may prevent authorization

    Thanks for using the Apple Support Communities. Have a good one!

  • The iTunes Library file cannot be saved error message

    Most of the time, whenever I open iTunes I get this error message:
    "The iTunes Library file cannot be saved. An unknown error occured (-48)."
    However, nothing is ever missing from my library despite this message. Can someone tell me why this message keeps coming up and how to fix it? I am using the latest version of iTunes (7.6.1.9).

    I since yesterday get the message "The iTunes Library file cannot be saved. An unknown error occured (-54)". I have an iMac running MacOsX 10.7.2. I have tried rearranging the preferences with respect to the Media file. This seems to work?.... However I wait and see for the next days.

  • Error message: The iTunes Library file cannot be saved. An unknown error occurred (-54).

    I opened iTunes and downloaded 2 songs from http://www.reverbnation.com. Shortly after I started getting this error message: The iTunes Library file cannot be saved. An unknown error occurred (-54). Anyone dealt with this before?

    == Error -54 ==
    From an OS9 reference, error -54 is a software lock on a file or a permissions error. (Some of the old codes still apply to OSX although there is no formal list of OSX error codes.)
    First, try simply restarting your computer.

  • Error message 13026 the itunes library file cannot be saved? and damaged fi

    this just started to happen today--i tried to open ituens and then it said that the library was a damaged file and i basically had to re-upload all of my songs, vids, etc over again. Now when I try to organize my library an error message: 13026 comes up that in essence says that the itunes library file cannot be saved an unknown error has occured. When i did upload the library again, half of the album art never appeared.
    My questions are has anyone else experience this? How should I fix this? Should I uninstall and reinstall itunes completely?

    Hi there - I am having similar problems, I keep on getting damaged library file error messages, which means I have to reimport my entire music collection files again after deleting the damaged library files. Obviously I lose my playlists every time. I've also had to uninstall and reinstall Itunes several times. I have checked permissions on my iTunes folder as well as the Itunes Library Genius file as above and have 3 types with full control: Fiona PC, Fiona PC administrator and System. I can't seem to change individual permission types away from everything being allowed. Is this part of the problem? would appreciate any help, thanks Fiona.
