I am getting this error for SQL 2000 "Could not allocate space for object '(SYSTEM table id: -42164838)' in database 'TEMPDB' because the 'DEFAULT' filegroup is full."   How do I get more space

I have googled the error, and I am told I am out of space.  There is no administer here.  I have to do it myself.  How do I go about finding how much space I have, and expanding it.

The drive that the SQL database is on is out of space.  Log onto the SQL server and check the disks.  Free up some space there.

Fastest and easiest is to add another file to the database; put it on a drive that has lots of extra space, and start with a good-sized allocation.  The exact amount will depend on the size of your installation, but 2G should be a decent amount regardless.

Expand "Databases".  Click on "System Databases".

Right-click on "tempdb".  Select "Properties".  Click on "Files" (on the left side of the screen).

Click "Add" (at bottom), and add a new file -- BE SURE THE DRIVE YOU CHOOSE HAS PLENTY OF SPACE.

I have not administrator to add the space.  I was looking for the steps to add the space.  But thank you for your quick response
