There are AD installed in my windows2000 Server. Last month i found that C drive is out of space. So i moved the 500MB pagefile from C drive to D drive.

After changed to D drive, C drive show that there are 500MB free space. However when i copy a 10MB file to C drive. It prompt a box asking me to clean disk because of out of space.

Can anyone tell me why it seems that the space is not released even though C drive display there is 500MB free space?

    The problem is solved.
    After i release 10MB more space(that means total 510MB free space) and restart the windows. The 500MB disk space from moving pagefile can be used.
