    Well I have 2 partitions, C: and D:. I have Win 98 installed on C: apart from other system software. Games and Entertainment find their place on D:. Now both are 10GB partitions, and I was believing until now that I had approx. 3gigs free on C: and 666megs on D:.

    But, when I tried to create a new file on the D: drive, it gave me an error saying that I had run out of space on D: !!! :shock:

    What's happening?

    Might b tat space is allocated for something else like recycle bin etc.
    Or tat file is too big and needs more space

    Oh well it was a boot sector error that made the sys report the free space incorrectly. It's settled now. Thanx for ur time.

    Mods please close the thread.
