Disk full error message?

stuff, this site has issues.
Okay, what I need to know is why I am getting a "disk full" error message when I try to save photos. This has only started to happen and my disk drives have plenty of space left on them.

Thanks, but what is the Scratch disk set?

  • Why am I getting a "Disk Full" error message when attempting to export?

    I am trying to export my movie at large quality or higher and every time it gives me a "disk full" error. However, I was able to successfully export it at medium quality. I don't understand why I would be getting that error though because both my internal hard drive and external drive, which I am exporting from (but onto the internal), have ample amount of space to accommodate for a large or HD quality video. Any help would be much appreciated!

    How much space do you have?

  • "Disk Full" error message on Muvo TX FM 512, connected to Wi

    The Muvo TX FM 52 connects fine to my Windows 2000 laptop, and my windows XP desktop, but when transferring files (drag and drop) I get an error message stating that the disk is full. Windows explorer and Checkdisk both report over 00 MB available. Not sure what to make of the problem, and am open to suggestions.

    - No, it doesn't appear. But, I don't physically have the player....it's with my daughter who li'ves in another town. According to her, it did not show up in My Computer. In fact, when she put the player into her USB port on the laptop, it didn't say "found hardware" or any message, which it usually does.
    I know her laptop has Windows XP sp2, she has Windows Media Player 0, but not Creative Media Source, since we did not install the CD that came with the player onto her laptop. I didn't think it needed any drivers since it's XP. Isn't that correct? Or is that the problem?
    2 - My other problem lies with the new MuVo TX FMG player I received yesterday. My PC has Windows XP Pro, no service packs. How come when I transferred music to it, nothing happened,shows "no music" when I turned it on. I saw all the files transferring. Yet when I go to explore the dri've on the PC, the music is all folders, like 50 of them? The music is there but doesn't show up on the player.
    I used WMP to transfer the music, using drag and drop. I wound up deleting everything and transferred the same music using Creative Media Source and that works fine. I am very confused with both players. Thank goodness all I do is build and repair PCs!!! MP3 stuff is over my head I think!
    Sorry, this post really should have been in two questions.

  • "startup disk full" error message

    So, I get this error message saying "your startup disk is full: you need to make disk space available by deleting files" (or something along those lines). I went through my files, saved about 10 gigs of stuff to my external HD, then deleted it from my mac HD.
    I keep getting this message, even after clearing up several gigs of space. When I boot up my computer, I have about 448mb of space on my HD, but it seems to disappear within a few minutes, even without any activity on my part.

    A Unix-based OS such as OS X requires hard drive space for log and cache files; this can take anywhere from 64MB to 2GB depending on how much RAM you have, how long since the cron maintenance tasks last ran, whether anyting is causing large write operations to the various logs, and so on. As a rule of thumb, you don't want an OS X Mac to drop below about 5GB free space, minimum; a oft-cited ballpark of keeping 10 to 15% of the hard drive free allows for user-created data and allows some safety margin.
    If a Unix computer fully runs out of space, the computer can fail to start normally. You'd then face starting in single-user mode (hold the command and s keys down at startup), which puts you in a Unix command line interface. It's possible to use Unix commands to navigate around and search for unnecessary files to delete, but doing so if definitely non-trivial.
    While written for Tiger, Francine: A Miscellany of Mystifying Tiger Problems has some useful tips you can try.
    If you moved several GB to the Trash and tried to empty the Trash while the Mac's hard drive was nearly full, that effort may have unintentionally corrupted the disk directory. Boot from your OS X Install disc to launch Disk Utility from the Installer menu, and run Repair Disk on the hard drive (see Using Disk Utility and fsck). If repairs are reported, repeat Repair Disk until no problems are found. If DU is unable to repair the drive, DiskWarrior can often make directory repairs that DU cannot.

  • Start up disk full error message

    I just started getting an error message that states that the "start up disk has not more space available for application memory". So how can I fix this myself?

    Btw my HD specs say my capacity is 999.86 GB, my available is 869.24 GB. I checked and my daily, weekly, monthly scripts all appear to be running properly. Is there something else I should look at to fix this problem?

  • Disk full error message! But disk is not full!!!

    I kept having this message "The disk is full trying to write to Macintosh HD. Free some space on this drive, ..."  while working on Microsoft Word for Apple. But I have check on my Macintosh HD and there is still plenty of available space. What is wrong???

    I'm getting the same error. I tried to purchase a movie and iTunes told me I didn't have enough store credits, even though I was attempting to use my credit card. I finally was able to click the 'buy now'; but now it won't download the movies, giving me the same error and a message window which states:
    There was a problem downloading "x movie".
    The disk you are attempting to use is full.

  • Startup Disk full error message but free space shows 87GB

    Hi I have looked through these forums as much as I could but can't find the answer to this. I was working in photoshop CS6 and received the message that my startup disk was almost full. I had just cleared files the day previous and had 87GB of free space. So I restarted after emptying trash etc and tried to get back into photoshop but had the same message, checked my free space and it said 2gb. So I began my search here and saw the issue with .OfflineCache in mail but was never able to locate that file on my computer and after trying several things and failing I checked the info on my Mac hd drive again and it was back to 87gb yet message still coming.  I have 8 Gigs of Ram, a 321 Gb hard Drive and running a Mackbook pro 13" with Mac osx Lion 10.7.5. Mid 2010.
    Please Help!!

    I would try using GrandPerspective (http://grandperspectiv.sourceforge.net) to try find out where all the space is being taken up.

  • IMac G5 20" - Startup Disk Full Error Messages

    I wonder if you can advise or help me please,?
    I purchased my first Apple computer in December of last year (2005), a 20” iMac G5 with iSight Camera built in. I also had an extra 1 GB Ram added at the same time.
    This is my first experience with Apple computers, having previously only used either MS-DOS or various versions of Microsoft Windows. The last 6 weeks have been a dream, and I have had no problems whatsoever, until now that is.
    My hard drive as supplied is a 250 GB one, and apart from the operating system and applications supplied with the computer, (OS X Tiger 10.4, + Appleworks and iLife 5 etc.) I have installed the following major software: Microsoft Word 2004, Adobe Creative Suite 2 Premium (comprises Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat Professional, In Design and GoLive) as well as Intego VirusBarrier, Intego Net Barrier, and Intego Backup.
    This has left me with approximately 170 GB on my hard disk.
    I imported some 30 audio book CD’s into my iTunes collection over the past weekend, which I imported, in AAC format at a bitrate of 40 kbps, (which is all that is required for spoken word audio) which takes up a total of around 630MB in size. When I went to close iTunes I received a system warning stating that my ‘Start-up’ disk was nearly full and that I need to remove some files. I was very surprised to see this, because I knew I should have around 170 GB left - give or take a gigabyte.
    I closed the system down completely, and left it for about an hour and then rebooted. Instead of the normal nice quiet start-up I normally experience with the iMac, it ‘roared’ like a jet engine!
    I can only surmise it was the systems fans going into overdrive, but it was very alarming. It took about ten minutes to settle, and then went back to its normal quiet self. But when I checked the amount of disk space it said I had about 100 MB (MB not GB) free, and then after a few minutes this number climbed rapidly until it reported I had my expected 170 GB free.
    So I though that was the end of it, but when I ran the system again this evening although it started up just fine this time, and had the 170 GB free, after I had left it for a couple of hours it then reported that my Start-up disk was nearly full again!
    I then went though the same procedure and series of events I have just outlined above except that the system did not ‘roar’ as it did the first time.
    All system files have been kept up to date with the use of Autoupdate, and were last checked four days ago, and my version of OS X is 10.4.4
    As I am at a loss to explain what is happening, and as I am not knowledgeable on the Mac OS X operating system, I thought you might be able to advise me. I apologise if this is not the correct forum, but I thought it was the most appropriate one.
    Thanks and Kind Regards

    Hi Dr Smoke!
    Many many thanks for your swift reply, it is really appreciated.
    I looked at the Console utility you suggested via your link instructions (very helpful) and found in the System.log that there were indeed whole swaths of repeating messages relating to Adobe Acrobat 7 stating:
    ".../Users/andrew/Applications/Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional/Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional.app/Contents/MacOS/Acrobat: Invalid color: colored pattern specified with uncolored pattern colorspace...."
    With regards to Adobe Creative Suite, although I paid the upgrade price from Adobe CS1 to CS2, it is in fact the full package and not an upgrade software package because my previous version (CS1) and earlier versions of Photoshop etc were all on the Windows platform. Because of this I had to go through nearly a month of faxes, emails and submissions of 'Letters of Destruction' before Adobe would allow me to move platforms, and send me a full version of CS2 for OS X.
    During installation last Friday night, I went through all the on-line ‘updates’ it suggested and therefore thought it was all up to date.
    I therefore opened Acrobat 7 to check its version and found that it was v 7.0 so using the ‘check for updates’ menu link I have updated it to v 7.05.
    Hopefully, that should now put an end to the problem.
    I have also downloaded demos of the two programs you provided links to, and will monitor the situation as you suggested.
    I have marked this post as having been answered, but should I have any further occurrences of this problem, I will return another post.
    Thanks again for your help and links

  • Scratch disk full error message.

    OK. I have a MacPro with a 232 GB hard drive. It is telling me that I only have 3 GB available. I've calculated the contents of every folder and can not find out what is using up all my space. HELP! What can I do to find out where the big files are? And what can I throw away that I don't need? I've tried to clean out everything I can and there still isn't room on my scratch disk to run PhotoShop to work on a large graphic.
    What can I use to optimize my drive like you could in the old days, and defragment?

    WhatSize will let you know what files are taking up room on your drive. (http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/13006/whatsize)
    You shouldn't throw anything away in the System or Library folders, in general you should only throw away items in your user folder or Applications folder. Some applications require an uninstaller to remove so you might want to post here before deleting any unwanted applications.
    You might consider buying another larger drive, they're pretty cheap these days and they're very easy to install.

  • Media Encoder - "Disk Full" error

    I am using CS4 and tried to render my 1st video of about 2 hours to MS AVI format. I get an error after about 20 minutes that says:
    - Source File: C:\Users\Cooper\AppData\Local\Temp\SSDC Winter Dance.prproj
    - Output File: F:\Videos\Premiere Pro\Sequence 01.avi

    Disk Full.
    The Output file disk has about has about 650gb of available space available. Can anyone help me with what the problem could be? Thanks.

    First thanks to everyone who tried to help. I believe I found the problem. It had nothing to do with Premiere Pro setup. The 1TB external hard drive that I was using for my scratch drive was set up as a FAT32. This meant that any files I tried to create that would be greater than about 4GB would error out. This is why I was getting the "disk full" error message even though my disk still had over of 600gb available space. I converted the hard drive to NTFS and have no more errors. Hopefully my discovery will help the next person who may run into this problem.

  • Startup Disk Full Error - Please help

    Dear ALL,
    I have started to notice recently that when I run Photoshop CS on my Mac OSX Tiger, I am getting the Startup Disk Full error message.
    I have no clue as to how to correctly fix this issue. I looked at my HD and I seem to have 32GB available, which I would have thought would have been ample space. I have started to remove unwanted files and backup to CD large image files. So this should free up some more space. The question is will this be enough to get rid of this issue and is it associated with the amount of HD space on my drive? or would I need to run some script etc? or download/buy some other product to fix this?
    Your help is greatly appreciated.

    OK I tried Macaroni...and when I tried to work with a TIFF file I get the same Startup Disk is FULL message. The I get an adobe message saying Scratch Disk is FULL.
    Any further suggestions would be appreciated.

  • Adobe Photoshop Scratch Disk Full/Startup Disk Full error - PLEASE HELP

    Dear ALL,
    I have started to notice recently that when I run Photoshop CS on my Mac OSX Tiger, I am getting the Startup Disk Full error message. Never happended before.
    Since my initial post I downloaded Macaroni (utility) and have run the daily/weekly/monthly backups, checked the /private/var/vm and /private/var/log and /Volumes. Nothing unusual there...
    When I started getting this error I had 32GB left on a looked at my HD and I seem to have 32GB available on a 152GB drive. Now after deleting I have 76GB capacity left.
    But when I tried to open a Photoshop PSD or TIFF file and do a crop I still get tge Startup Disk is Full error followed by the Adobe Photoshop error Scratch Disk is Full.
    I am thinking of running the Disk Utility from the Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility and doing a Verify Disk and Verify Disk Permissions followed by Repair Disk Permissions. I will be logged into the machine whilst doing this. Is there any danger in this as I have read elsewhere that I need to do this from a bootable volume. If that is the case how do I create a bootable disk/cd? If not then what is the cure to my Disk Full as surely there is now nearly 50% FREE!!!!!
    Please help.

    PS will always use the boot disk for scratch to some extent even with an alternate primary scratch disk.
    Be sure to turn off Spotlight as it causes problems.
    4GB of RAM would be nice, I understand small files don't work well if there is more than 4GB RAM but large files will. OS X uses free RAM as cache and RAM disk before using disk drives.
    How much RAM is allocated to PS? More RAM would help.
    A dedicated lean boot drive helps. Install just what is needed for your work, use a separate drive for data, and yet another RAID volume for scratch.
    When in doubt, backup with SuperDuper, and do an erase and then restore. Always backup before repairing; and never, ever, use an old version of Tiger CD/DVD - like 10.4.2 on 10.4.7/.8. Use "fsck" instead, or your emergency boot drive.
    Also, give Applejack a shot and delete the cache folders and swap files from time to time to keep a system humming. CS/CS2 and Tiger benefit nicely from more RAM.
