I am running XP SP2 with all updates. I occasionally get "Insufficient quota to complete the requested service" error messages. Could anyone help me to correct this?

Insufficient quota with regards to what ? I mean what is it exactly that you are trying to do ? Quota generally refers to you running out of disk space or something to that extent. If you could ellaborate on what you are doing exactly.

The problem is caused because of a low amount of resources.

With NTFS, there is a feature that allows you to set certain quotas for certain users. It could be that the network administrator has set up a quota limiting you to a certain amount of disk space. So if you are trying to install something that will cause you to go over that amount of space then you will get a warning like that. You should talk with the administrator and see if that's the case.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

RAID  Zero  

It's a RAID Type, RAID 0 is a performance array, where you have 2 or more hard disks setup so that data is written (striped) to both drives to increase performance, but it lacks redundancy. So that's me, I'm here to increase people's performance and not provide redundant posts I guess, I dunno =)

Thanks Raid0. Sorry I didn't reply sooner but I didn't know you (or anyone else) had posted replies and only today knew when I got the abandoned notice.

Thanks again,

Steven

P.S. I haven't seen the error message again, perhaps as I've had to restore from scratch. Even backeup disk images failed. Strange.
