    Not Enough Free Space?

    I tried to install a program to my HD today and got an error message that said there wasn't enough "Free Space" on the drive I was trying to install it to. I have 4 gigs of free space on my HD so I can't figure out what the problem is? I didn't change the default folder that the program wants to install to. Nor, did I change anything else? This is the first time I've run into this type of error after downloading and installing hundreds of programs on my computer.

    WHAT GIVES?

    That is most likely a bug in the program install program. Some older programs and installers choke on disk sizes over 2 gig.

    I suppose that it is possible, but not likely here. The software isn't "old" and is being used on thousands of other computers with far bigger HD than my paltry little 6.5er, <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    First I am trying to establish if an error message like this is indicative of a Windows problem. If not, then I will look at the software as the possible source. Of course, things do get corrupted in Download sometimes too.

    Run Scandisk, it may correct the disk information of what the OS recognized.
