Hard disk full in win98

  dodger 11:15 15 Sep 2004

I keep getting a hard disk full notification even though my 1.99G c drive is only 724mb full.
Any ideas?

I would imagine that the system paging file is taking a big chunk of what is lefgt bringing you to the point wherte the warnings start.

Can you compress the drive to give more capacity?

Or convert to FAT 32 if it is FAT 16?

Have you had extended memory that the computer doesn't recognise?

FAT16 will waste a lot of space if there are a lot of small files. FAT16 use bigger size of Cluster (smalles storage unit). One cluster cannot hold more than one file (bigger file need more clusters). So small file in a big cluster will waste space. When you check file size, it gives you actuall size, so 774MB used more then 1GB disk space.

Thanks for all your answers but it hasen't resolved my problem. I hane FAT32 but I don't know how to check my system paging file. I understand I can't compress the drive with FAT32 and besides, I'm not actually short of disk space.
Any other ideas or suggestions.
