    Post WinME and free space

    I am having a problem with ME and the free space on my hard drive(s). When I try to download soemthing after a certian a point it says I have no room left on my drive even though I have 2 GIGS free. It's like this for my other partitons too and it seems to give me the message when I get to 10% free space. I turned off the recylce bin and set the system resotre the the minimum. What can I do to actually use my whole drive?

    Hell I'll take a stab at it... Maybe its your swap file? Could be that windows is trying to use it that much disk space. This is only a guess but couldn't hurt to set it to a fixed size.

    I actually disabled the recylce bin in the 2 partitiions but still can't use 10% of the space and the swap file would not effect drives D and E as they have nothing to do with it. I'd really like to use this 3 gigs of space I have, I think i'll switch to Win2K.

    Cpl,

    I just checked my Recycle Bin settings. I
    think I just found a BUG, because even though
    I have the setting under Global at 5%, if
    I click on each partition, it is greyed out
    at 10% (the default).

    So, have you tried setting each partition's
    recycle bin separately?

    It's a thought....hope it works.

    I had a similar problem, it said I Had 7 gigs free when in reality I had 10 gigs free... I scan disked and it found some errors and now I got my 10 gigs back... So try that..

    I ran scandisk and it seemed to work. I also think that if you reduce your recycle bin, a restart is needed to make the changes.
