Quicken Backup Error Message

  Prewch 18:14 05 Jan 2007

For years I have backed up my Quicken files (current size 1.9Mb) to my D drive which is a 3Gb capacity hard drive with more than 2.8Gb of free space on it.

Tonight I suddenly got an error message from Quicken saying "Your back up disc is out of space. Insert a different disc and click OK.

At first I thought I had selected the wrong drive (eg A with a floppy clearly far too small). So I tried to backup again ensuring my D drive was selected. The same out of space error message came up again.

Next I moved the last Quicken backup file fronm D to my desktop and then reformatted the D drive. Still no joy when I tried another backup to D. So for the moment I am backing up to my C drive which goes without a hitch. Clearly I prefer to backup to D in case my main hard drive C goes down at some time.

My version of Quicken is the special millenium upgrade issued to the then current users by Quicken. I believe its based around Quicken 98.

Help please. Thanks in advance for any ideas on bottoming this one.
