Why do I get Disk is Full when trying to save Excel to server?
Posted on 2008-11-11
Installed SP2 on our W2K3 SB Server. I ran further patches including Microsoft Critical Security Alert MS08-067.
Since the update certain users are getting the following errors when attempting to save an Excel file to that server (file size is about 3Mb to 4Mb).
Disk is Full
Application Popup: Windows Delayed Writer Failed: Windows was unable to save all the data for the file \\server\folder\folder\file.xls. The data has been lost. This error may b e caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection. Please try to save this file elsewhere. (the file does save to the users local computer).
Event ID: 26
File Path is too deep
As a work around, the users are copying the file to their desktop, working on it, then moving it back.
There is 7Gb of space on the server, and everything was working fine prior to the patches over the weekend. Right now only two users are experiencing the problem, but Im assuming others are not calling me at this point. Those users specs are:
Dell Latitude D620
Dell Latitude D430
Can I uninstall the patches (including SP2) that I installed? Is there a specific order I must follow?
