Disk is full, too many files open

By KittyM ·
After making minor changes to a Word file that is 755Kb in size, error message states that "Disk is full, too many files are open, cannot save the changes" There approximately more than 1G of free space on the hard disk.
Any clue what could be theproblem?

When you save files, Windows saves the revised version, then deletes the old version.

You do not have enough free hard drive space.

With a 755KB file, you need a BARE minimum of 1.6GB of free hard drive space in order to save the file.
Allowing for temporary files, and virtual memory, you should have at least 3GB free hard drive space to work with such a large document.

Executive Software, (the makers of Disk Keeper) recommend a minimum of 20% of all hard drives be free space.

There are several suggestions that could be made but it would help if you could you be more specific about the version of word and operating system. Oh yes and file type.

e.g. macro virus, corruption, cut & paste into a new file etc apart from the various word v operating system errors.

Are we talking Kilobytes or Megabytes?

In either case, delete all temp files and defrag.

If the file is really 755KB, then try saving it to a floppy. If it's 755MB then Chas is right.
